Stephen Elop: "FML"

Segundo fontes seguras, Stephen Elop - o CEO da Nokia - está neste preciso momento a fazer facepalms enquanto murmura, qual miúdo austista, "FML FML FML .... ".



Isto porque o primeiro patch oficial do Windows Phone 7 tem uma feature particularmente interessante: brickar telemóveis.

Citando a Ars Technica,

"Monday, Microsoft started rolling out the first update to Windows Phone 7. The company was non-specific about the purpose of the update; it's not the copy-and-paste update that will be shipped next month, rather an update to somehow improve the update process. (...)
Sounds simple. Except it doesn't actually work. The two Samsung handsets on the market—the Omnia 7 and possibly the Focus (which are, or were, my pick of the Windows Phone 7 crop, thanks to the way their AMOLED screens make the operating system look so delightful)—are both experiencing "difficulties" with installing the update. The updates are failing to install in two ways. For lucky individuals, the process merely hangs on step seven (out of ten); rebooting the phone resurrects it, albeit without the upgrade. For a minority of unlucky users, the process fails at step six, and corrupts the phone's firmware. What's worse is that for some of them it appears to be bricking the phone completely, rendering it useless."
Well played Microsoft.

Updates? O meu telemóvel só serve para fazer chamandas e enviar/receber sms. Para que complicar?
