PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak: "We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence'. Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today." Later Biniak adds: "As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right." There was a simple solution to this problem.

Old Guy's thoughts....

As a non-techy pensioner watching this from the sidelines I think Nokia is a sinking ship, they probably were before the Microsoft invasion. The "Elop insertion" just increased the rate of descent and my determination to get myself an N9 "before all the good phones were gone" (they didn't last long in Brisbane).
The only dogs I have in the tech wars are my cash and my passions (Linux zealot) and I will expend neither on any Microsoft product if I can help it.
So I suppose all that could be re-stated as a question....
Am I the only person who dislikes Microsoft enough to not give them money, even if it hurts Nokia ?
Or perhaps a short statement....
I will never buy a Nokia product with a Microsoft operating system.
Thanks for reading.
