PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Sorry for the delay in writing a story about this, but here we finally are: Nokia's MeeGo (or Maemo or whatever it's called this hour) is getting its successor. Yes, MeeGo, the short-lived but beloved platform running on the unicorn phone, the Nokia N9, will continue onwards in a slightly different form. Its new home? Jolla - a company formed by former Nokia chief operating officer Marc Dillon, who was the principal engineer for MeeGo/Maemo at Nokia since 2006.

They don't need any "traction". Why do people think you have to make an absurd amount of money to keep a company afloat? Not everyone needs/wants to be Google or Apple.

As a matter of fact, with digital manufacturing (3D printing) around the corner, I foresee lots of small companies and even individuals making all sorts of electronics in the not so distant future without giving a damn about "world domination".
