PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft was very close to take over Nokia, but that the talks eventually broke down, probably beyond repair - at least for now. The reasons the talks broke down illustrate something that I have repeatedly tried to make clear for a long time now: Nokia isn't doing well.

Most phones that are aluminum (like the HTC One) sell for no other reason than they are aluminum, even though they're not any more/less durable than a well made plastic phone. That makes them fashion accessories, and the people that buy them shallow.


Ah, so the only criteria that matters, according to you, is durability, and anything else is irrelevant. Must be nice sitting there on the high horse and looking down upon the world around you.
