Probably only a few of you readers know who Michael Mace is. Well, I think that he will introduce himself better than me:
“I’m a principal at Rubicon Consulting, where we help tech companies solve tough strategy and marketing problems. Drop by and sign up for our newsletter. I’m former Chief Competitive Officer and VP of Product Planning at Palm, VP of Strategic Marketing at PalmSource, director of Mac Platform Marketing at Apple, and served in a lot of other roles. For more info on me, visit my website.”
Pretty Impressve, isn’t it? Apart from these, he writes a personal blog named “Mobile Oportunity” where he analyses, very precissely I must admit, key events related to mobile world. He is not very prolific (Michael, if you read this, please, don’t take it as a critic ), one post a week, but his posts are always worth reading.
One of the his last posts has been specially interested for me. It talks about Psion, a company we could cald Symbian’s father. The post mentions an extremelly interesting article by The Register about Psion, which is also worth reading.
Please, take this advice and spent (not waste) some time reading both articles. You will not regret it.
