PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Nokia is set to market their first Windows Phone 8 hardware differently, according to a report by the Financial Times. The manufacturer will be entering into partnerships with a handful of EU carriers to exclusively launch their next generation Windows Phone. The newspaper states the company has already entered into talks with a number of operators including France Telecom." Not to be a spoilsport or anything, but doesn't carrier exclusivity kind of rely on people actually, you know, desperately wanting a certain device? It's like Nokia's executives live in this fairytale land where people are actually buying Lumias and plan their actions accordingly. It's uncanny.

That is we have a government. Everything big is done by the government. It funds and coordinates big projects. There would be no computer, no nuclear power, no internet and no web without government. There is no private entity big enough to fund and coordinate such things.

uhh...no. We have government to provide a tranquil environment for its citizens. Government excels at graft and corruption. Unelected unaccountable appointees are driven by nothing other than their desire to steal public funds for themselves and their buddies with no competition and no recourse for those whose resources are being stolen.

Companies going under happens easier when competition is allowed and small companies are allowed to push out dinosaur companies.

Or do you mean another government controls Elop to bring Nokia down? Not impossible.
