About Me

  • Hello you. I'm a 38-year old MSc student, studying Advanced Computer Science at Sussex University. I'm especially interested in Internet and mobile software, sensors and pervasive computing, user interfaces, and the process of developing great software.

    Before that I spent 11 years running Future Platforms, a software company I co-founded which makes lovely things for mobile phones, and which I sold in 2011.

    I read a lot, write here, and practice Aikido and airsoft. I live in Brighton, a seaside town on the south coast of the UK, with two cats and a clown.

DoCoMo is not liquidating the business but liquidating the entity, perhaps to make the business more core to the main business.

See my analysis of item 5 on this page:

Hmm, I'm not clear on what the difference is between liquidating a business and liquidating an entity. They both sound very 20s mobster to me...

Shutting down a business unit seems like a very downbeat way of showing that you want to put more effort into the area it was covering, but maybe I'm being commercially naive.
