PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "While Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop has steered the company into a Microsoft future, not everyone is happy about it. Workers have walked out in Finland, and now a group of shareholders is planning a new strategy called "Nokia Plan B". The new plan has been formulated by a group of young Nokia shareholders who all have experience working for the company. None of them are happy with the decision to embrace Microsoft, and all of them plan to challenge the decision and strategy going forward."

While I'd like to believe that, what's the difference between attitude and ability, really? It's like saying our kid is smart but doesn't do well in school because [s]he doesn't try. In most cases, it's more of a denial than an actual assessment.

Remember when Apple was sinking? And everybody was telling them that they should ditch OSX and become just another PC manufacturer?

Yeah, sure, there actually are kids who aren't just applying themselves, so the "in most cases". I don't know. From what I've seen coming out of nokia, I'm quite skeptical about it as a software engineering company.
