Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Things that have made my day this week:

Probably the saddest photo I have ever seen:
The saddest picture ever.
ABode Hotel in Manchester which has been a world away (in a good way) from my experience from my previous stay at the Britannia Hotel.

Nokia’s communications team and their ongoing battle with Hong Kong-based mobile analyst Tomi Ahonen which has rolled across my Twitter feed like some bizarre wireless soap opera.

I finally finished Neal Stephenson’s REAMDE novel which I thoroughly enjoyed; probably his closest book to Snow Crash.

The demonstration video I saw of Tizen was interesting if only because it was devoid of UI fireworks. It will be interesting to see what Samsung does with Tizen over the next 18 months.
