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.

Which is why nature gave us non stationary eyeballs, so we can look elsewhere. That is also why Beelzebub invented the scroll bar...

Little do you know, you're talking to someone with incredibly bad eyesight... lazy eye and extreme nearsightedness... and on top of that, broken glasses (that recently had to be welded back together and are no longer even angled correctly) with an outdated prescription (need to get an eye exam and a new pair of glasses badly). But yeah, theoretically maybe it *should* be easier, and for some people I'm sure it is.

But hey, this is getting off-topic. If OSNews provided the ability to automatically block all articles flagged "Nokia" in the same way Adblock Plus does ads and completely removes them, chances are I wouldn't hesitate to do take that chance. I'll just leave it at that, because there really is no point in arguing.
