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.

With your logic you need to follow people on all these walled gardens, registering everywhere. I gave up on that, and told people if they want to connect - let them use XMPP (which supports federation). Watsapp is just one example, there are many others and it's just not practical to register on every one of them. In the old days e-mails weren't much better. Users of AOL couldn't send mail to users of Compuserve and etc. This idiocy is long gone with e-mail. Yet with IMs it's pretty hard to get rid of it.
