I don't believe in conspiracies. I believe in the power of propaganda,
and the fact that the world is overwhelmingly filled with human sheep,
who blindly continue current practice, not out of intelligence, but
out of stupidity.

I used to use Opera, until it became pay only, then dropped it. I
haven't kept up with it much since, except from time to time hearing
more evidence of them changing their business model further in the
wrong direction. I strongly suspect that it's an ugly death that was
long overdue...

Look, I don't mean to drag Nokia through the mud completely. The
Internet Tablets are definitely a step in the right direction. I just
wish that Nokia would be honest, firstly with themselves, and secondly
with the community.
