Some Highlights

Mobile's future video roundup



Google bets on Android's Future

"Open source is a mechanism by which the source code of the operating system is actually for free and that way the carriers and OEMs are not really locked into a single vendor, nobody really owns this.

"It means they are free to take it into the direction that's important to them; they can fix bugs, add enhancements so in the end the consumer has a better experience."

Nokia morphs itself from within

He said the focus for the firm was a "total solution", encompassing hardware and software, but focusing on a "compelling user experience".

"The company that understands the end user experience is going to have an edge," he added.

"When technology is below the user requirement, technology drives the industry.

"But once you cross over to the mainstream then you have to look at services and the user experience.

"The real focus now is compelling user experiences. It has to be user experience driven rather than technology driven."


Icahn sues for Motorola documents

Motorola has agreed with analysts that it needs a better range of phones.


Motorola splits in two: Mobile Devices, and Broadband and Mobility Solutions


The board of directors has agreed to split Motorola into two independent, publicly-traded companies. (...) The Mobile Devices business will focus on the design, manufacturing, and sales of mobile handsets and accessories globally. The Broadband & Mobility Solutions business covers Moto's enterprise, government, public safety, and home and networks business.

Letter from a Moto Insider: How Stupid Execs Ran Moto Into the Ground

Instead of channelling that money into the obvious — you know, further development of consumer devicesZander purchased enterprise companies such as Symbol, and engineered massive stock repurchases.

I felt that he was setting the company up for massive failure.

In order to turn the handset division around, you need to bring in another Geoffrey; someone worldly and dynamic who is more interested in success than their corporate career.

You need to task the company's designers with the same mantra that created the RAZR — make me a phone that looks, feels, and works like a symbol of wealth and privilege. Recognize the superiority of American software, and bring back those jobs so irresponsibly outsourced to China and Russia. Fully embrace embedded Linux and Google's Android initiative, and take the phone operating system out of the stone age. Recognize that, while rich people don't really know what they want, the lower end of the market does — and fund the development of an online "crowdsourced" device design platform to take advantage of this fact. Get rid of all of your silly, useless marketing, including those overpriced and completely ineffective celebrity endorsements, and do one solidified global campaign with Daft Punk (the only group whose global appeal extends from American hip hoppers to trendy Shanghai club kids to middle-aged Londoners). Understand that the next big feature in handsets isn't a camera or a music player — it is social connectedness; build expertise in this area, and sell it down the entire value chain.

uniqueness and importance of the American culture of creativity and ingenuity; whereas other countries back their money on gold and commodities, we back ours on our ability to invent the future.

Six Sigma

While the particulars of the methodology were originally formulated by Bill Smith at Motorola in 1986,[2] Six Sigma was heavily inspired by six preceding decades of quality improvement methodologies such as quality control, TQM, and Zero Defects



Quite funny that... Six Sigma was created there. Once leading, now dying. C-Board stupidiness can kill great businesses - Hard but truth.
