    Sorry for the double comment- my comment from last night wasn't showing up for some reason, and I thought the site had deleted it.

    Yeah, I thought this was kinda ridiculous too. You brought up some more issues that I wasn't even aware of.

  • Nokia's Turnaround Underway As Lumia 521 Sells Out In Wal-Mart [View article]
    I'd say it'd go the other way around. Once there are enough believers in the company, the stock price will go up.

    Does anyone know how much margin Nokia makes off these phones?

    Wouldn't they make far more money off a large iPhone than a small iPad?

    The issue is that subsidized phone plans are rare outside of the US and Japan, and are pretty much unknown in the developing markets a cheap iPhone would target.

  • What Makes General Electric Different Now [View article]
    I haven't heard anyone say that, since bond rates are so low. I'd be interested in your perspective on tha.

    Another similarity in the GE/MSFT comparison: widespread hatred of the current CEO. I'm not saying it is or isn't warranted, just noting it.

    The parallels between GE and Microsoft on this front are amazing. People scream dead money when, really, they got what they paid for, and they basically paid for p/e compression.

    The issue is that that sort of subsidized data plan doesn't really exist outside of the United States and Japan, which has stymied iPhone sales in the developing world, which is where companies ranging from Samsung to Nokia to Huwawei are targeting so much of their efforts.

    I thought the choice of Neil Gaiman was also bizarre.

    For some reason, that bit about Lenovo and other PC makers wanting into the cell phone market makes me think of the line

    "Dude, I got a Dell Phone!"
