Which comes as no surprise. And the Finn thing was a jibe anyway - there are few, if any Finns I know that practice the repetitive level of post-adolescent rudeness and general snark that you have posted. That lack of caring about a national company of the size of Nokia sitting next to you where you work is a level ignorance and apathy that is congruent with your overall lack of knowledge.

By the way I do not speak Finnish and could not be bothered to use Google Translate, but I cordially invite you to: Foxtrot, Oscar, Echo, Sierra, Alpha, Delta. From me to you, up close and personal.

Seriously. All you can offer in this most weakest of defenses is FOESAD?? A tired and over-used diatribe. How silly and unimaginative of you. And certainly in no way "up close and personal" my over-amped arrested adolescent. It's like a two-year laying on the ground kicking and yelling - impressive in the amount of energy used but ultimately ineffectual.

And since you have demonstrated conclusively that you have no means of effectively evaluating real information, this is completely understandable and sad. Very, very sad. The combination of your complete inability to argue coherently, to recognize facts of the ground, or to present any sort of rational and sensible defense of your opinions, seems to indicate either impaired mental ability on the order of Asperger's, or worse some sort of sociopathic displacement or perhaps incoherent rage issues. The rather xenophobic dismissal of you current country of occupancy, its people, history, culture and economics generally support the state of mental disfunction.

For which then I completely and humbly apologize for engaging you in the manner I employed previously. My assumption of coherent rationality was a mistake and I see now that I needed to take a much gentler and more conciliatory approach which would not have so taxed your limited faculties. I withdraw immediately any and all further discussion with you in penitence for my error.

Would I can that much benefit from the iPhone, no I wouldn't, but I am not saying that others will feel the same way.

Again, you seem to be confusing things, Nokia hasn't dumped Symbian for anything, they are using a different OS on one model yes, dumping no.



If they are dumping Symbian like you say, why are you cared. Also, WebKit is open source, so they don't need Apple for it at all.



Not sure what you are trying to say here at all.



Now, your lack of knowledge really comes out, Nokia handset division made a profit, quite a large one, it was NSN that made the loss. Also, they still sell some models of their phones in Japan.



Yes all the metrics changed to revenue because Apple doesn't make a dent in the share otherwise. As a consumer (ie I don't own shares in any company) Apples profits on their devices offends me, enough to make me really think what make of computer I will purchase next will be.



Again, your point? Apple has been copying for years, all companies do it.



I own more Apple products than Nokia products and that makes me a fanboy? For which side?

His point is: Apple can do no wrong ever even when they do. That is just changing the game, and innovation on Apple's part and everyone is simply jealous and picking on Apple for being such a winner. Don't you get it? If you purchase any other brand than an iPhone, you are immediately deemed a fanboy for not goose stepping to the Apple marching music. Also, you must take up residence in Steve Job's pants. Thinking different is not allowed.

This should clear it up for you.

I have a suggestion: find a forum where people that you respect are posting. Engage them in lively discussion on matters that interest you. Then, you won't come across as a desperately unhappy loser that takes whatever bitter pleasure you can by hanging out where people you loath are, just so you can endlessly repeat the same dimwitted sarcasm that was tired 15 years ago. Which apparently feeds some kind of sick need.

I promise you, you'll feel better. You really don't have to spend time fixated on the things you hate. You can spend time enjoying the things you like. Life is short. Go out and have some fun.

Wow. Must have hit a factual nerve. For the record, I do not hate anyone here. How could I? I do not know anyone here and I derive no benefit one way or another from many here. Yes, this is an Apple forum that has a rabid following for a company that is no better than any other company, to include Nokia of which I also own their products. The thing is, I tend to gravitate towards the middle where the truth and many facts reside. You can replace many of the over the top blind followers in this forum with Al Qaeda sympathizers, or holier than though evangelists, or Zionist fundamentalists and come up with the same brand of people who have a blind devotion to a once sided "me right, everyone else wrong" mantra. Could I make my posts a bit softer? Sure, but I don't want to. I rather wade out into the passive-aggressive mix that is pervasive in much of this forum.

Oh, I don't care how I come across to you. Yup, we are now both on the same sheet of music.

Nope, I'll give them whatever they want even the 18 different models of Nokia we currently stock.

You can even buy a Nokia smartphone (E63) and pay $A5 a Mb to use data on PAYG if you want, it's only $A199 (locked) and with network crap all over it.

Nokia's later marketing move seems to flood the market (well here anyway) with models and take up all of the display space.

Meanwhile iPhone's keep marching out the door, you can now get an 8GB free on a $A49 24 month plan.

The HTC Magic and the BB Storm languish, the only Storms we see nowadays are one's going off to repair because they are s%&t.

Show your customers love and never sell them a Nokia N97 nor an N97 Mini. They'll thank you for it later.

3. While you may want to pontificate and expound, the facts are pretty clear in the questions I asked. Maybe the simplicity of their very nature was lost on a high-brow person such as you.

The 10 patents that Nokia is suing for are real, "you need our technology to work" patents that Apple infringed upon. Many to most websites following this have gone on to point out that these are very specific patents that Apple cannot simply brush off. The Apple patents appear to be more dredged up and vague and an attempt to try and level the playing field. The bottom line that many Apple-istas hate to admit is that Apple is no better than any other company and they got caught with their hand in the patent infringement jar. Apple sues people for just suing an icon. This suit is the best thing that could have happened to them. Hopefully it breaks their arrogance.

Now if you will excuse me, I am going back to downloading apps for my iPhone.

How long have Apple been running recycling programs?

http://www.apple.com/recycling/

The iPhone has shipped with less cables than most other phone's in smaller boxes which means you can fit more in a container, ship, truck etc reducing the carbon footprint an idea Nokia copied with the black N79 eco model.

It can be argued that Greenpeace singled out Apple for publicity purposes.

The probable reason Nokia gained so many brownie points among the greenies, is that they no longer harvest forests for woodpulp.

How many cables does the iPhone ship with? The most any of my phones have come with are, a power cable, data cable, and headphones. And in the last few years that has reduced to just two, and the majority of phones only come with a power cable. Are you saying that Apple is shipping less than one cable?

Of course you can argue, but what facts do you have to support it? The 2009 report http://www.evertiq.com/news/15198 contains the lates info and endorses Apple for the right direction. Sure it's greenpeace, but if you look at older reports, they quite clearly state why Apple hasn't been in the forefront and why Nokia has. The same criteria had been applied to others. Recycling is not the reason why Apple has been at the back of the list. Apple has been "partially good" at that.

A quote from the 2007 report "Apple was the lowest-ranked electronics manufacturer in the last Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics, but makes the biggest jump this time, into 10th place, thanks to pressure from Apple fans around the world through the Green my Apple campaign. " Pretty much how I remembered it from back then and a good direction.

And yes, Nokia ranked #1 or #2 on all of those reports that I could find whereas Apple ranked from last to mid-field. That was the whole point of the original responce. And why would Greenpeace have picked Apple as the mark back in 2006 "for publicity reasons" since other bigger players were on the same list?

Here's the corresponding page from Nokia: http://www.nokia.com/environment. Green is "fashion of today". But Nokia's been at it for quite a long time.

But, this is so far off topic, that it's time to stop this stream of thought and conclude that both are doing a lot of green stuff nowadays, the original posting about Nokia being an environmental badboy was just badly off the mark (as it would have been for Samsung or SE).

I wish i was wrong about toxic nokia
i wish they could make a great jesus beating phone .

NOKIA does some very good phones
maybe one good smartphone.


but this un founded lawsuit against APPLE CO leaves them wide open to attack word wide 24/7 forever /


Well, you are off topic while complaining about off topic which makes you off-off topic .
And yes nokia in Finland is very green . MY god the finnish must not be ever polluted ...the ever so green finns leave that that to the poor chinese/indian/african NATIONS where nokia's throw away crap phone's END UP polluting.Ipity those in poor area's of china/India where 13 yr. old kids mine the metals out of electronics including phones ./

Sadly nokia is making tens of millions cheap crappy throw away phones created soley for a 18-24 month contract cycle .And further more those dozens of extra shelf space grabbing model's insure most will be obsolete very soon

SO

If nokia phones has any bad stuff inside like mercury or arsenic among other toxic shit even if and these toxic stuff ARE in small amounts it F-ING adds up to a ton of toxic material when selling 60 million phones a cycle .

Or are you saying nokia's phone are made of sugar and spice .
NOKIA
Should go back 15 yrs. and make good phones again .

no soup for you dude


apple phones never die
they are passed on down thru the family
They even end up as gaming devices when all else goes dark .


N O K I A has sold over 500 million phones this past decade !!
Exactly how many have been mailed back to finland ??

Hey Brucep,

If memory serves me you and I may have traded barbs once or twice. However, I would like to say thanks for what you had to say in this post. It was very well put. I have a tendency at times, to be drawn it by others smartass remarks and end up resorting to making a series of my own smartass remarks in response. There is often a fine line between being a smartass and giving someone a much needed verbal reprimand like you just did with sapporobabyrtrns.

You can also use the charger to charge other phones and accessories by plugging in the appropriate cable (micro USB, Mini USB etc).

The 5800 ships with a cable attached to the charger, a data cable, a TV out cable, and headphones, if you want to charge it from a USB port you have to buy an additional cable.

The N97 ships with a data cable, a cable attached to the charger, an adapter (3.5mm & 2.5mm to micro USB) to charge from older Nokia chargers and headphones, there was a bit of dismay when people realised the TV out cable included with N-series phones over the last few years was missing.

Ah yes the pedantic jfanning, who doesn't believe in smartphone's.

The reason I chose those two models was that they share common traits with the iPhone, namely touchscreens and they are marketed as smartphone's e.g. not many smartphone's are shipped without data cables as connectivity to a computer is one of the things which usually make them smart as in phones, thereof.

As you would know from the Nokia smartphones you have purchased in the past.

The reason I chose those two models was that they share common traits with the iPhone, namely touchscreens and they are marketed as smartphone's e.g. not many smartphone's are shipped without data cables as connectivity to a computer is one of the things which usually make them smart as in phones, thereof.

Pedantic? Yeah, probably, but you wrote the above, I will repeat since you have trouble with what you wrote. You wrote that the iPhone has shipped with less cables than most phone's. See you wrote most phones, you even went on to say in other posts that Nokia sells 500 millions phones a year, that would make them the ones selling most phones. Now as most people on this site like to say, most of Nokia's phones sold are the cheaper ones, those ones only come with a power charger. Now lets try this again, are you saying that the iPhone comes with less than one cable?

Now, you seem to think that you work at a shop selling phones? This shop wouldn't happen to be k-mart, and the phones fisher-price would they?

yeah I can read, I suggest you read the section for Asia Pacific (not the Aussie one) and look at the conditions. Hmm, actually read the Aussie one as well, you will see that their Asia-Pacific conditions make it quite a poor solution compared to the other countries

And you as a patent lawyer would be qualified to make the decision that it's unfounded? And I guess the Apple countersuit isn't unfounded?

green my ass.

At least Nokia has made it possible to do so just like Apple has started doing (since 2007 seems). Can they help it if consumers don't send them back? And do you factually know the percentages of recycled devices by manufacturer?

If you actually went and read the reports (for which I gave one possible URL for you to do so via), you'd notice that most of the difference comes in manufacturing. Both parties seem to be OK in recycling. Apple products are significantly more toxic at manufacturing than your hated Nokia phones or Samsung or SE for that matter (and Apple manufactures exclusively in China).

Just decrement the number to see older reports, which are worse for both parties.

Your original rant was not a case of which phone is better or worse (Personally I think Apple's user experience and looks are far better than Nokia's current offering). You rode the environment horse (which has no relevance to the law suit), which happens to be the wrong horse to select if you want to compare Apple and Nokia (or even Samsung and SE) and make Apple the winner. That's all.

Thank you for your kind reply .I do not hate nokia , I hate what nokia and all electronic companies do>>to our environment . APPLE before turning green was far worse than nokia because computers are far larger than a cell phone . Nokia shame is that they know better than to flood the markets with cheap throw away plastic junk . They know better .

THANK YOU FOR THE LINKS I WILL READ TONIGHT. T

These lawsuits are par for course for both companies to clear away problems that can't be fixed any other way . My rant against nokia was tongue in cheek . I REGRET IF I WENT TOO far .


peace dude

No probs. I did think of the possibility, but dismissed it. I should have checked your profile instead of assuming you to be a teenage fanboy on a rampage. Maybe I'll learn...

They copied Microsoft. What's Quadra's favorite saying. Start the copiers.

First, Apple didn't invent it they bought the company that did. No shame in buying someone's great idea.

Second, "start the copiers" is in reference to the shameless copies whereby Microsoft creates a feature in the UI that is so strikingly familiar to a Mac user that you can't help but know it was inspired by the Mac counterpart. Then Microsoft changes the name & pretends they thought up the idea (no giving credit to Apple for giving them a good idea).

The idea of multi-touch wasn't thought up by Apple, it was perfected by FingerWorks who was then bought by Apple. FingerWorks had a great idea for how to build the interface & Apple had a vision for how to use it. This might be the one area someone could really blast Apple on, that they had such a great touch technology & yet have taken far to long to develop it into any sort of a touch screen solution for a full sized computer.

Their touch interface is one thing they should license given how they haven't really utilized all possible aspects of it. That is the tragedy of big corporations, they buy up & then monopolize the good ideas, thus slowing the progress of technology.

Apple acquired a small company named FingerWorks which did invent it.

Fingerworks didn't invent multitouch input either. They invented a particular version of multitouch technology.

Recycling is not the reason why Apple has been at the back of the list. Apple has been "partially good" at that.

A quote from the 2007 report "Apple was the lowest-ranked electronics manufacturer in the last Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics, but makes the biggest jump this time, into 10th place, thanks to pressure from Apple fans around the world through the Green my Apple campaign. " Pretty much how I remembered it from back then and a good direction.

And yes, Nokia ranked #1 or #2 on all of those reports that I could find whereas Apple ranked from last to mid-field. That was the whole point of the original responce. And why would Greenpeace have picked Apple as the mark back in 2006 "for publicity reasons" since other bigger players were on the same list?

Here's the corresponding page from Nokia: http://www.nokia.com/environment. Green is "fashion of today". But Nokia's been at it for quite a long time.

But, this is so far off topic, that it's time to stop this stream of thought and conclude that both are doing a lot of green stuff nowadays, the original posting about Nokia being an environmental badboy was just badly off the mark (as it would have been for Samsung or SE).

Regs, Jarkko

Direct GreenPeace Report:

http://www.greenpeace.org/raw/conten...12-edition.pdf

Ironically, Nokia's ranking is centered around phones.

Apple's ranking is centered around the desktops, laptops, phones, ipods, servers, monitors, etc.

Apple gets heavily dinged for not releasing Energy reports from their campus and more.

Seeing as they've been preparing to build an energy green campus it should be expected you won't know their footprint until that's operational.

Perhaps Apple should spin off Apple Mobile so it can get a high ranking?

Hell, SONY Ericsson gets nearly as high ratings as NOKIA but SONY proper gets lower rating than APPLE. Gee I imagine it has to do with the fact SONY does a helluva a lot more than phones and those cheap miniPCs.

Samsung gets brownie points for:

GOOD (3+) Points
Samsung Electronics supports
global mandatory cuts of
Greenhouse Gas emissions of at
least 50% by 2050 (from 1990
levels) and cuts by industrialised
countries of at least 30% as a
group by 2020. Samsung scores
maximum points for also calling for
global greenhouse gas emissions
to peak by 2015.
More information.

Wow! Lip Service. Give points for actual action, not talk.

APPLE gets 0 Points because they haven't given them an answer [Lip Service].

@brucep,

Sorry. I forgot the face.

It's good to know that Apple doesn't use PVC and/or BFR in the iPhone unlike Nokia handsets.

Hey angus, read it a weep.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-touch

I particularly like this part here...

"Multi-touch technology dates back to 1982, when Nimish Mehta, an Apple employee at the University of Toronto, developed the first finger-pressure multi-touch system. The system used a frosted-glass panel with a camera placed behind the glass. When a finger or finger pressed on the glass, the camera would detect it as a black spot on an otherwise white background, allowing it to be registered as an input. Since the size of the dot was dependent on pressure (how hard the person was pressing on the glass), the system was somewhat pressure-sensitive as well."

Wow, someone tried to say Apple copied Microsoft's Multi-touch? That's historical revisionism at its finest. There are several different ways to implement multitouch, and Microsoft's system isn't even similar in physical implementation to what Apple bought with Fingerworks.

Sure, Apple isn't the end-all of Multi-touch (to suggest such is similarly revisionist in ways), but to suggest that means Microsoft was the major originator of Apple's implementation, that's quite interesting.

When you read Angus' history his comment becomes less surprising.
