PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We've got some good news for Symbian, and we've got some bad news. We already had Sony Ericsson abandoning the Symbian platform, but today Samsung joined them in leaving Symbian behind. The good news is that Nokia has released some figures on downloads from its Ovi Store, and it ain't that bad, actually.

It's not my fault that you turn the closure of some web services into the wrong claim that Samsung abandons Symbian.
Samsung does not abandon Symbian! There will be new Symbian phones.

If you combine it with this:

It makes perfect sense.

But that's not the point. The point is your tone. Your German item is interesting. However, you'll need to learn to SHOW RESPECT, and submit it without acting like a dick. I know you hate me because I have the balls to call out Apple's flaws, and that's fine, but that's no reason to attack me at every possible opportunity.

Like I said, I put an inordinate amount of work into OSNews, and I run this website pretty much on my own. I need to cover so many subjects in such incredible depth, that mistakes - and this item is not a mistake, since your update was posted LATER - are simply BOUND TO OCCUR. Most people on OSNews are incredibly kind and understanding of this, and send me an email or leave a kind comment if I make a mistake, to make OSNews better. To improve my understanding of matters.

Yet with people like you, that's not why you do this. You only point this out because you want to attack me. That's all you care about. It's all over your comments. The aggressiveness is dripping out of every letter.

I'm sick of that. I work incredibly hard on OSNews EVERY DAY, and I WILL NOT let people like you piss all over that. Consider yourself warned.

Engadget got it wrong as well, turning the closure of some web forum into dropping Symbian.

Maybe Samsung will at some point in the future drop Symbian. I don't know. But what I do know that that was not announced yesterday. All that was announced was the closure of some web services in favor on the upstream one at

Turning that announcement into "Samsung drops Symbian entirely" is wrong and it stays wrong. No matter if some other IT medium called Samsung or not.
If the story was "Samsung closes Symbian forums" it would have been 100% accurate. It could still fuel speculation of dropping Symbian but that speculation wouldn't be turned into a fact.

Oh, if you don't like other posters' tone, you should start to not insult them in the first place.
For example in the comments section of the BlackBerry PlayBook news item, I simply wrote where the term "pad" for those kinds of devices originates from (Star Trek) and out of the blue you called me and everyone else who watches Star Trek "overrated crap"-liking "nerds".
Adjust your tone and I'll adjust mine.
