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.

Although I do get the feeling that for the people working on these products the secrets are hardly secrets, they know how the other companies do it.
Why would they? There is no reason to think all ideas are obvious. They are not.

Yes, that is what the patent people keep telling us. But there are really only so many way to do something.

Patents are only part of the problem. Novel ideas or code are sometime not even patented, because a patent is public and may give away ideas to competition to improve on.
