PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Things ain't going well for Nokia. Their quarterly results are - again - a disaster, and Lumia sales have dropped 28% (50% if you look at just the US). Windows Phone 8 is really going to be a make-it-or-break-it kind of thing. If it doesn't go well, the company might consider going back to focussing on rubber boots.

Any executive in the world can stem losses by cutting jobs - hardly worth any praise. What takes the best skills is faking confidence when you know everything's going down the drain, but Elop's not the first nor the last manager who's far better at acting than at running a company.

P.S.: Nelson, I'm sorry to make such a personal comment, but I'd like to congratulate you on your dialectics and above all fervid imagination.
If you're a lawyer in real life, you're undoubtedly a skillful one. The power to turn reality upside-down, inside-out yet accusing your interlocutors to do so is something not many individuals manage to control to these extents.
Have you ever heard about ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi's lawyers and fellow politicians in Italy? They're _almost_ as good at defending the indefensible.
