So the development of webOS is being driven by Ari (Jaaksi). Ari has been driving it for the last seven months, and he continues to drive it.
People repeatedly say how “brilliant” he is.
All I’ve ever seen is his record of releasing utter shit.
He was responsible for that abomination that nearly drove me insane, the Nokia Internet Tablet 770:
I’m heading the Linux and open source development at Nokia, responsible e.g. for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet -software.
The 770 was the worst product I have ever handled in my life — then and now:
What could incite such bitter disgust and raging hatred in me towards a device? I’ve been using tech professionally for twenty-seven years.
Put on some sunglasses — because it will scorch your eyes — and read that.
Now you can understand why the dictionary for webOS in the HP TouchPad has “dont” in it instead of “don’t.” Why touches don’t register. Why the device is laggy.
That is his record!
The HP TouchPad is the Nokia Internet Tablet 770 all over again!
