Just for us Stephen Elop Fans

The man is too clever for most. So I thought it's high time we collected his mobile wisdom.

Kicking it off with some 2005 foresight:

Elop says he won't be satisfied until Flash animation is on every consumer-electronic device with a screen. He wants to see digital-cable menus in Flash and GPS monitors in cars employing it, too. Last week, Elop bought a printer for digital photos, and he couldn't glance at it without thinking how much better it would look with a Flash-enabled screen. "It was a cheap device you plug your digital camera into, with a screen built on the front," he says. "It didn't have Flash, but it had these screens and interfaces Flash could have really helped with."

Why Windows Phone? "It gives us the opportunity to lead," Elop said

Guess it's time to put that Flash thing on a Lumia :p
