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.

I'd be surprised if anyone cares about Nokia at this point as you do.


You maybe? Thom definitely. Otherwise, you just wouldn't post.

Nah, not really. To be honest, I just want to see one of two things happen:

1. They get their asses out of the rut they're in, or
2. They just die, preferably sooner instead of later

...because honestly, I'm just getting sick of hearing about them.

Whether they survive or not, I really couldn't care less.

You're aware of the fact that you are not forced to read every single story in this site, right?

Okay. This is enough. BURN THE WITCH. Just kill this f***ing company already.

Now I no longer want to see this company survive at all. Destroy the troll. So pathetic they have to do the dirty work of Microsoft for something as ridiculous as a patent covering sending--gasp--links in e-mail messages. :|

Nokia now has no redeeming values. F*** them.
