Well.. what to say… people aware of the fact that how I started with blogging would not be surprised that how annoying I could be at times, when take someone’s side. Yes!! admitting it, I took someone’s side, but for very fare reasons.

If someone calls himself a journalist then I thought he should have had dare to argue or at least facts to show rather than staging an interview to say that I never had a phone. So, was that review a complete lie or someone just scared now?

I could understand that many bloggers are avoiding to be a party in this argument as one of my friend said that one must know both the sides before speaking up. Well.. what to say.. I already said

Just visited the profile of the great “journalist”, who sudden became journalist since the leak and to my surprise, the following appeared in my chrome browser

blocked

Interesting, very interesting… the person, known only for selective leaks of secret and protected properties of mobile company, want to protect his tweets from me? ;) Eldar1

Well!!! Mr. Eldar Murtazin, its not something that would be solved by blocking one or one thousand persons.

All the best, you need it ;) and by the way, me too do not feel sorry for you

You should have asked me for returning proto says Eldar

with 3 comments

Think that your phone got stolen and after a few days you come to know that its with someone, who already knows that its yours. What should be your response? If you are aggressive then you will go for hitting the man that why he didn’t returned or if you are mature then you will make a polite request that please return my thing back. What if the person doesn’t reply or ignore all your requests? What will you do?

Edlar N8 proto

Seems like a roadside bully story, but very strange that it’s now becoming today’s fastest growing trend in tech world. Reviews, pre-views, leaks, lost prototypes been such frequent incidences that even we started assuming that bloggers are above law and they have rights to tell people what they wanted to tell.

Somehow we sympathize investigative reporters that they risk themselves to bring insider leaks in great interest of public and whenever someone such even after using all legally wrong means get nailed by authorities, then we speak in support of him because what he did was in greater interest of public. But aren’t such trends getting much harder to be tolerated by even most polite authorities?


I could also discuss that what damage the early review of an unfinished product cost to Apple’s iPhone release, I could also talk that how a biased pre-review  of an alleged ‘stolen’ proto forced Nokia to announce a product much earlier before their team could even finish it. I could also also talk about series of biased posts from the man himself and also mention my own past with some similar situation, where I was like Eldar in start of my blogging days … but many analysts will be out there to talk on that. Let me go simple here.

I guess today in early morning, we got to see a post from a public consultant about smart phones named Eldar Murtazin, who claimed that some Russian officials contacted him in morning asking for location of mobile-review.com over the leaks of Nokia N8 as Nokia complained with them that their trade secrets has been stolen and misused to cause a confusion. Later even Nokia’s official words followed in.

Much more written there as facts, but in past everyone has seen that its been play of words only (which was the last handset from Nokia that he praised and didn’t called a fail? Not even Nokia 5800), but still he claimed the followings:

  1. Nokia never asked for returning the alleged proto (Not denying to have it)
  2. He tried to return, but no one replied his so important, generous and ‘numerous’ emails
  3. Nokia not trying to send thugs or trying to nail him
  4. Nokia hasn’t asked for closing down mobile-review.com or jailing Eldar

The issue is that Word of mouth been much important in now days for market and some times people even taking advantage of same. It was just caring for PR that Apple didn’t went for kill, when Gizmodo spoiled what was their years worth, it was just caring for same PR that Nokia could only said “we’d like our prototype back. Please

Its their own prototype, even has mention of the same on it, stores are all around the globe that one could drop the proto back, but still they were helpless saying Please for their own thing and answerless since April 27, 2010.

Eldar’s excuse, he has been on ‘vacation’, so didn’t got any letter even if received in office, Nokia has no proof that he received any letter as he wasn’t in office. How innocent this guy is… even Gizmodo wasn’t. He also admit that Nokia sent him mail about sending their properties back, but what was his reply? He said which device in particular, I am testing many of them? Please mention.

One can really understand that how annoying it might be for a company that trying hard to nice with one, who even after stealing their property, ruining their strategies, ruining their PR and knowing exactly what they are talking about asks back that which proto you talking about?? Is their any law exists about own property, own expense, own hard work? Any moral?

May be we enjoyed Gizmodo, when he leaked out one of the biggest secret people were after, may be Gizmodo earned a lot from that. May be Mobile-Review.com earning good attention due to Edlar, but don’t you think that it will lead to worse for bloggers all around the world? Aren’t the respect or a little relaxations we blogger enjoy now days gonna be on sake, when some of biggies show such disrespect to laws and morals?


I know there are many around with a complete bias and they are searching for one sided info only, but still I thought to engage the man himself on some irritating questions … see what happened today July 07, 2010
