Earlier this year, I had lunch with my friend, David, the tech guru. He helps me look smart with my boss. My company wanted to develop a mobile app for our employees. It had to be GPS capable, allow us to stream audio and video, and support touch screen, web services and web applications. David said to use Symbian.
What’s a Symbian? I consulted my dictionary and found that Symbion is an aquatic animal. That wasn’t it! I also found Simian, which is a monkey. David certainly didn’t want me to hire a monkey to develop my app. I called him and admitted I had no idea what a Symbian was!
