My New Role @ Mozilla

After a couple of years working on Mozilla’s mobile operating system project, I’m coming back to Firefox! I’ll be doing some familiar things and some new things.

Foxtrot Update Jan 2015

Hey folks. Welcome to 2015! About half of the people participating in the Foxtrot program have still not received Flame phones. I’m sorry about that. I’m hard at work on this but it depends on getting the right builds on the phones. We aren’t going to send our Foxtrot testers new phones with builds that […]

I’m Back!

PROTIP: Don’t erase the Android phone with your blog’s two-factor authentication setup to see if you can get Firefox OS running on it unless you are *sure* you have printed out your two-factor back-up codes.

Foxtrot is Here

We’re excited to launch the first, small-scale, FLAME reference phone program, “Foxtrot” for Mozillians. We have about 200 devices available for members of our community (volunteers and employees) who are not part of the core OS dev teams, who will use the phones regularly, and who will participate in product surveys, focused testing efforts, and […]
