Eventually they’ll say “oh, the best way to do this is to do cloud computing” and then they’ll set up a system where you have to pay a subscription fee (because cloud computing is never free) that no one will pay for.

Waiting for the SecondLife Mobile Viewer is the virtual world version of Waiting for Godot. I remember asking Rod Humble when will the mobile viewer be ready and he said very soon. Maybe its more an inside joke then an actual project since its been dangled before us for so long and seems to never materialize. But then again to jaded long time Second Life residents, anything Linden Lab promises we already know what to expect.

They already know how to do a mobile client that could let residents teleport around the grid, IM other other people and check inventory. There are two other clients that have that functionality on Android and one on Apple that I'm aware of even if some haven't been updated for a long time.

Perhaps the reason they don't collaborate with any of the authors of those apps is that they don't have any genuine long term interest at all.
