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.

And as I said, I was likely wrong about that particular comment.

But the fact remains there is a long-standing anti-American attitude on this site. I tolerate it because I know it's not directed at me, and I believe this is the first time I've brought it up. There's no double standard, and you're putting words in my mouth, things that aren't even in my vocabulary. (Uppity? Really?)

I could see you taking that position if I were constantly making comments and accusations, but that isn't the case.

I was simply using a bit of a hyperbole to highlight the double standard I perceived in your post, that's all.


Thinking that other people's critiques of us come from a place of bigotry, while at the same time assuming our criticism of others is perfectly reasonable (and justified), is a pretty common occurrence.


E.g. I don't see that all that anti-American sentiment you seem to feel from comments in this site. While at the same time if I had a skin thin enough I could perceive some anti-European harping from your post(s). Even though I'm sure that was not your intention...


Sorry for the tangent, as this has nothing to do with the contents of the news item in question.

I think we can both agree that it goes both ways.

I will say that I think it was unfair of you to paint me as a hypocrite when I chose to speak up one time about something I've been silently observing for a very long time now.

Anyway, enough of all that...I want a Sailfish phone to play with! And I'm adding my voice to the ones hoping for Thom to review it soon.
