Comment: Sadly for Nokia, Not Necessary. (Score 3, Interesting) 286

by glassKarma (#41595817) Attached to: The Case That Apple Should Buy Nokia
In short, Apple doesn't need Nokia. Nokia has reinvented itself many times since it made shoes and tires, and it's WELL OVERDUE to do that again. The problem is cell phones are effectively all it does, and it's tragically lacking innovation there (FWIW, I worked for Nokia, and made detailed suggestions over ten years ago about more storage, touch screens, and more battery life, and there was repeated immediate dismissal over how impossible it would be). The sad part is Nokia went to Microsoft rather than it's dedicated developers to find that innovation. Microsoft will even help kill Nokia partly because Nokia doesn't seem to know what to do, and mostly because they forgot Balmer doesn't care about Nokia any more than it can work as a stepping stone for Microsoft to "get back on top." Yes, buying Nokia would give Microsoft one less out for Windows, but sadly for Nokia (and to be fair, IMNSHO) Microsoft's overwhelming priority is to do its own work for Windows 8 after getting Nokia to abandoning [small] teams of [highly] devoted Symbian developers as part of the fallout in committing to The Balmer; proof.

+ - Apple Changes App Ranking Algorithm->

glassKarma (1215468) writes "A sudden change in the ranking relationship between Top iPhone apps and apps within their categories, as well the ranking of some apps themselves, seemed suspicious — at least to fiksu, which says it's a give-away that Apple's changed their algorithms somehow. Maybe it's to make rankings within categories more "accurate" or "in-proportion" to other categories, though so far Apple hasn't said why."
