    Bernstein even talked trash in the CC today! He was like "why does NOK need 1.5B financing", I find that pretty stupid since NOK current debt rating is very low and MSFT credit facility would have much smaller interest rate.

    incredible, rather than say "sorry, we are arrogant idiots who should go out of business, and should hang our head's in shame" they have the nerve to say, it appears the microsoft board did not agree with our assessment. I'm am absolutely astounded by the brass neck of these useless bottom feeders. They've changed their position on Vodafone too. Whao.
