Nokia launches ash cloud tracker

Boat sailed, plane flown, horse bolted...

Security for virtualized datacentres

Proving it's still at the cutting edge, Nokia has rushed out an Ash Cloud Tracker application, available free from the Ovi store for those who still care where the Icelandic bugbear is.

While the application is no doubt of enormous value to the residents of Orkney and the Shetlands where restrictions are still in place, the rest of Europe has rather lost interest in the cloud since flights resumed and now the attention is on how quickly the airlines can get their planes and crew back into the right places.

But if you're really interested in tracking the cloud then you can get the app from the Ovi store by searching for "ash cloud".

Don't try "Eyjafjallajökull cloud", as that won't get you anywhere, except maybe impressing those nearby with your keyboard skills. ®
