Engadget sucks. Here is a list of the reasons that proof it.

Qt on the way out of Nokia

At 11:43 (CET), we could read the following in The Qt Blog about Qt's long term future in Nokia:

Nokia CEO visit and Qt 5.0

Late last week Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and Executive Vice President Head of Mobile Phones Mary McDowell visited us in Oslo. In addition to holding an engaging session with the entire Oslo team, they both showed a keen interest in what we have in the pipeline for the years to come, our plans for Qt 5.0 and in the quality contributions we are receiving from the Qt community especially within embedded development.

While change and transformation is occurring within Nokia, it is important to stress that this doesn’t equate to a reduced investment in Qt. There is a continued investment in Qt and the Qt ecosystem. Our longer term plans for Qt 5.0 will soon be open for feedback. By becoming an active contributor you increase your possibility to influence and prepare Qt for the future. The contributor summit in Berlin in June will be a great opportunity to go into more details on this, and on Qt open governance.

But at 14:07, Engadget editor Vlad Savov writes the following in an article about the departure of Nokia Chairman Jorma Ollila:

Anssi Vanjoki, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, Symbian, and Qt are all either already departed or on their way out of Nokia.

Yeah, sure.
