Lost in the shuffle

      So it's been a few weeks since my last post. Been kind of torn about the Microsoft thing, and I'm having a hard time finding inspiration. So just a few things I wanna talk about. First it's the end of an era regardless of what Nokia does. Can they come back of course, can they win my heart back? YES! But I don't know where I'm gonna be. Its gonna be a long hard road if and when they get back into the device arena. 

       I'm excited to see what Jolla will do but until they will ship to the US I'm out until then. I've heard NEWKIA a few times but I don't know what that is all about.

      So I have wondered many times if anyone gets what it takes to compete with Android. I think Apple and Microsoft could but they can't get their heads out of the sand. How can anyone or anything grow if everyone is always saying "you're the greatest"" this is the coolest phone ever" I see 2 major flaws in Apple.
First they gotta put a memory card slot in the damn thing already! I personally would be more apt to buy one if I could get the 16gb and add memory to it later. But I'm a power user and would love to have a Terabyte on my phone. And second screen size but that is because of popular trends. Personally I like a smaller screen.

      Next is Windows Phone first kill Zune oh my gosh its so slow hate it refuse to have it. faster to upload to Dropbox or Skydrive and stream it back. Second notifications let me explain, I love Nokia but I have other phones I have a few Androids a few Iphones 2 Palm Veers a N900 and a Blackberry Q10. I have used them all in my opinion here is how IOS and Android excel, say I want to follow @nokia on twitter and I really like what they tweet or I am waiting for one in particular. On Windows Phone I have to stop go to their feed and finger through all of their tweets, and that would be fine if I had the time, but I don't. In Android as well as IOS you can goto their profile and just turn on the notifications, now I get all their tweets. I want this I need this I have 42 feeds that I follow in this way, can you imagine. This is the number one big papa reason Windows Phone is not my Main phone. Without this type of notifications I would rather carry Symbian if I had to choose I can do everything I need except maybe watch Netflicks and I don't "need" that.
Microsoft is now solely responsable for Windows Phone and it devices. So I Guess I don't care anymore.

      So anyway there you have it I feel better. I have more devices to write about but I've been pretty busy. Been trying to make some time so please bare with me.


      Questions or comments please feel free to contact me. You can follow me on Twitter at @Nokia_Refuge or contact me at Nokia_Refuge@outlook.com.

 Again the purpose of this blog is to save as many neglected or forgotten Nokia as I can. So if you have any that are in a closet or a desk drawer somewhere collecting dust. If you hate it and want to get rid of it or you love it but have no use for it and want it to live on send it to me. I will make sure that its retirement is comfortable and safe on my 1/8 acre refuge. Again I may be able to chip in for shipping but unfortunately unable to buy them as my wife would FREAKING KILL ME.
And it doesn't need to be a phone if it says Nokia its wecome here.
