This made me laugh today:  Microsoft buys Nokia handset business

 

I live in the Land of Microsoft, which I roundly despise.  The above article at 24/7 Wall Street asks an interesting question.  Now that Microsoft has bought Nokia’s handset business, what are they going to do with a money-losing hardware concern?

My thoughts:  Now they will have a guaranteed platform for their money-losing Windows Phone software.  The Blue Screen of Death comes to your Phone!

Somehow, I think most people will pass on that proposition.  Apple and Google have pretty much dominated the smartphone-software space, and Microsoft is just too slow-moving a behemoth to capture much of that market.  So shelves at wireless carriers will carry lots of unsold handsets (if they carry the Nokia product at all).  Good luck, behemoth!
