Top 5 comments on Nokia Connects this week

I was bored last night and looked up the word ‘comment’ in the dictionary, yes I was that bored. I found out that the word is a noun, pronounced ‘com-ment’ and that it is defined as a remark, observation or criticism.

Bet you’re glad I finally cleared that conundrum up! Here are five of your top remarks/observations or criticisms from this week on Nokia Connects…..

1. Nokia’s Eco Heroes


Are you a big time recycler? Do you do your bit for the environment everyday? I know I recycle rubbish at home, but I think I could definitely do more, especially when it comes to recycling my old Nokia phones. I noticed that one of our community members felt a similar way. Lorri Kerr stepped forward to reveal an honest truth about herself after reading that 100% of the materials in your Nokia phone can be reused.

Lorri Kerr on Jun 13th, 2012 at 22:42 pm

‘I still don’t think enough people are recycling anything and I can include myself in that category too I’m afraid. I’m sure I have 2 very old mobile phones just sitting around doing nothing – I must do something about that! Well done to Nokia for being eco friendly – I hope other mobile phone manufacturers are the same :).’

It’s great to see that you will be doing something to change your recycling ways Lorri, so will I!

2. Win a PureView with the #NokiaSustainabilityChallenge

Exciting times, yes believe it baby, we are giving away a Nokia 808 PureView as part of Sustainability Week! Check out the competition link above if you’ve not seen it yet. We are asking you all to do something sustainable everyday for 7 days and so far we have had some amazing entries.


But this really caught my eye, another example of the community doing something for the good of the world!

‘So, I’ve taken this on board and so far it’s all going well. Cycling to work and back all week and im enjoying it. Its actually been quicker due to volumes of traffic in the mornings.’

Wow, great to see Jimboireland has started cycling to work! He has also been getting his 4 year old into gardening by setting up a little plot in his garden for growing plants. So cool to see you’re all getting involved by doing something different to save the planet.

3. Creative lifestyles: I want to live like commune people

Are you part of a commune? I’m definitely not, but the hippy side of my brain wishes I was and I often dream about living on a big farm with all my close friends inside a self-sufficient bubble of fun. This is a great post for those of you who are contemplating getting up and leaving your desks for a new way of life.

One of our community members wrote a rather profound remark underneath this article about his take on the modern version of a commune. A remark that I thought was great and very insightful.

‘We all live in communes today – they just happen to be virtual and they exist in towns called Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr.’

What are your views on Greg’s rather philosophical observations? I would love to know…

4. Eden Project: The Eden Sessions

I’m going to feature one of my own posts now for the first time in this feature (**cue trumpet blowing**), after noticing that Lorri had struck again with a top comment. It’s always great as a writer to see how you have opened up someone else’s eyes to something new and this is a prime example of that:

Lorri Kerr on Jun 13th, 2012 at 22:39 pm

‘Cannot believe it’s 2012 and I didn’t know about this Eden Project!!! Sounds like it’d certainly be something to see, I would love to see the gardens there. Having Eden Project hold live events is a great way for it to gain some much deserved attention – I hope more people learn about this.’

I have already replied to Lorri, but I seriously think you should all make a trip to the Eden Project at some point in your lives.

It is a fascinating place like nowhere else on the planet (unless you can travel between the deserts and the jungle in under an hour and still be 10 minutes away from the sea!).

5. Music Mania – The Vaccines

This has to be one of my all time favourite comments ever on Nokia Connects.

We’ve been running a competition with The Vaccines all week and we asked the community where they would most like to see the band play live:

Boom Chiki Boom on Jun 9th, 2012 at 17:24 pm

‘The Vaccines need to be seen on the space station playing in zero gravity in all white. I of course would be up there as part of the Wolf Pack.’

I hope you managed to get featured this week. I’m already looking forward to searching for next week’s beautiful comments. Find out what we are posting here or @Nokia_Connects so you can comment away. Have a great weekend!
