I definitely agree with this. Having more focus, Meego would get great pretty quickly. If Nokia's N9 progress from PR1 to the current version is any indication... And it was only half-Meego.
I can tell you that there is a world of difference between production lines for Nokia and LG/Samsung. Nokia is much more worker-friendly overall, from R&D to manufacturing.
However, Nokia does use components produced by others (Chinese and Korean companies among them) that don't necessarily follow the same procedures. Nonetheless, Nokia tries to influence work environment on these, both from people and ecological points of view (to varying degrees of success, of course).
Full disclosure: I do work on projects for Nokia, so take my view with whatever amount of salt you fell appropriate.
Erlang is Ericsson.
> Think about it, who ever wanted a loan of Brazilian Reales?
Nobody, of course. But if it was in Brazilian Reais, I'd want one. Provided the interest is low enough.
Egos and charlatans aside, real academics with actual know-how/expertise on given areas are simply not going to use Wikipedia.
Not for any reason except that much of what they'd write would be reverted by some random i-know-more-than-you joe, or some of the entrenched biased "editors".
I love the Wikipedia idea and I still like the site a lot as a whole, but I no longer contribute much mainly because of this. Especially on the non-English wikis.
It's also a mistake even in South America or half of Europe. And especially in Japan.
