We just discovered an issue in both 1.0.0.5 and 1.0.1.10 today which causes update of the store token required for accessing store repositories to fail. A fix for that has been pushed a few minutes ago: The update to version 1.0.1.12 you might be seeing on your device soon contains exactly this one fix to keep store access working.

My Jolla arrived this morning, and I've been playing with it all day. It is by far the most exciting device and operating system I've used in a long, long time. When it arrived, the first update to the operating system was already waiting for me to be installed - and only a few hours later, another update is hitting the device. They have promised another large bugfix and stability update before the end of the year, with updates with new features arriving early next year.

These men and women know what they're doing. They're not overselling, and they keep their promises. A very promising start.

Wow...the very same attitude that Europeans claim Americans suffer from, coming from a European. Stay classy, dude.

Small-mindedness is small-mindedness, no matter which side of the pond you're on.

Do you have examples of what you mean?
The attitude here is: the US has such a stupid minefield of patents that it is not worth it to enter it until you have a big warchest with which to pay for those millions of lawyers you are going to need.
The attitude Americans suffer from: we are number one

I didn't see it as a patent issue (though surely it will be), but as a more personal "I hate fucking Americans" type comment. Maybe I was wrong, I'm just so used to the anti-America attitude on this site (deserved or not).

Yes, we have a corrupt government, yes there are a lot of idiots running things here...but the same can be said about most European countries. The difference is, the Americans on this site don't go around bashing European countries over a damn phone. Like I said, small-mindedness.

It's perfectly OK for you to chastise Europeans. But God forbid one of those uppity Euros dares mention the US with less than glowing praise. Did I get the double standard right?


Sometimes criticism of a country's markets conditions is just that; a critique on the difficulty of carrying out business there. Not a personal indictment against your character for being a citizen of said country.

It's about something else, there is a difference (perceived one, rightly or wrongly; it's present) between the US and "most European countries" - the latter don't really meddle in the affairs of others like the US does.

Luckily, now we have the EU to balance it out... ;p
