  • Nokia Still Treading Water, But For How Much Longer? [View article]
    Well......I think that you are writing your article sitting in an orchard looking at the ripe apples about to be harvested or fall to the ground because they're too ripe and heavy.
    Most of the world's population still needs to get their first mobile phone, they don't want or need a smart phone, yet.
    Nokia makes this kind of mobile phone and has a relatively strong presence around the world.
    I think that you are dissing Nokia thinking that smart phones are only phones people want. You seem to be looking at sales from your privileged point of view, a bit provincial, I think.
    By the way, I have all Apple devices and think that they're fine, but I'm looking at other brands and considering them.

  • Nokia's Revival: The Ship Has Sailed [View article]
    The best part of SA articles are the comments that are generated.
    I find that the comments add insight to the actual articles which I find oftentimes biased and slanted.
    THANK YOU, commentators.

    Nokia seems to be more sensible than some governments.

  • Windows Phone 8: Hats Off To Microsoft [View article]
    There are a lot of young people out there who are savvy and appreciate Microsoft's innovation. They don't even think about MS's, past, ups and downs, they want new technology and are adept at using it. They see the iPhone as their grand parents phone, simplistic and good for taking photographs. They are the new customers, along with their parents and grand parents who will be influenced by them and who want SKYPE, easy to use on their phone.
    Not to forget about all of the corporate customers who already use Microsoft products and those who will acquire MS because of its superior ecosystem.
    BRAVO Microsoft!

  • Microsoft Is Too Expensive For This Moment In Time [View article]
    I think that the short sellers are trying to start a movement.
    Ignore the critics, believe in MSFT, the giant is just starting to wake up.

  • Why I Bought Nokia: A Picture's Worth $2 Per Share [View article]
    I totally agree !
    Around the globe, it's the " basic" mobile phone that the majority of people will want. New infrastructure is being built to accommodate mobile phones, land lines ..... not so much.
    So, what will people want as an entry point? A basic phone! Not a fancy, expensive, "smart" phone, and I'm talking about millions and millions of people in urban and remote places around the world.

  • Microsoft's Outlook Is Ahead Of The Game [View article]
    Great article, Microsoft is not complacent, it's offering what people want and need in this quickly evolving environment.
    Would you take a look at Bing now?
    I use it all the time and find that it gives me more information than Google. In my opinion Bing is more objective in the links that it offers, which gives me more options, not to mention the Google is a bit sleazy when it comes to sharing information about it's users.

  • How Bad Can Nokia's Earnings Be? [View article]
    Nokia is an international company, with a longstanding presence in countries around the world. Also, Nokia has other sources of income and plenty of expertise other than just making phones for the US market. Since when is Amazon the great predictor of a total companie's rise and fall?!

  • Jamba: Earnings, A Disappointment [View article]
    If there is a Jamba Juice in the vicinity a health conscious person would choose Jumba over McDonals, who really knows what McD really puts in their juice? Starbucks, if you want a smoothly, I think not! Way over priced.
    Jamba in schools, airports, work/college campuses, malls, neighborhoods, at the market ( in the frozen section), would be welcome by health conscious individuals, and there are many of us and many who aspire to be and need more convenient alternatives to the current choices for a quick healthy snack/meal .
    Jamba needs to be everywhere and offer related products like yummy health bars, blended vegetable juices and Dukan Diet meals on the go. They need to be affiliated with health clubs and yoga studios.
    There are exciting ways for them to differentiate themselves from McD and Starbucks, once they do, they could dominated the "healthy snack/meal" niche.
    Also, if they could align themselves with Soda Stream, so that people could fizz up their own bottle for free, or purchase a Soda Stream bottle the on the spot, it would attract customers not to mention making mayor B. NYC, and New Yorkers very happy!

  • Nokia's Rebuild Continues [View article]
    Nokia should spend some money on advertising that highlights the best features of the Windows Phone. It's about attracting customers, it's about selling the phone.... Right?
    No one I know knows about it, they just think iPhone and Android.
    This is a shame, I went to have a look at the Lumina 900 and it's really a great phone, once people know about they'll want one or at least consider it as an option.

  • Microsoft (MSFT) is taking shots at Google over the search giant's lack of support for Windows Phone. In a blog post, a legal exec accuses Google of preventing Microsoft's WP YouTube app from supporting features found on Android/iOS YouTube apps. Separately, Microsoft says it's"surprised and disappointed" by Google's decision to end support for the Exchange ActiveSync protocol, used to provide push e-mail support  for Gmail on WP devices, for new hardware. Is Google trying to thwart the adoption of a rival OS that uses Bing as its default search engine? (previous[View news story]
    I say good, go MS!
    After all, where is the consumer in all of this?
    Everyone knows that google is biased and as a consumer, I will choose the search engine that gives me the most/best information in a fair, unbiased format.

  • Steve Elop Helps Ease Some Worries Regarding Nokia [View article]
    And so what is going to get customers into the stores?
    What stores? Just AT&T stores? People will be there to buy a phone, a smart phone, not a camera.
    It seems that Mr Elop is focusing too much, no pun intended, on the camera.
    Besides, side by side photo quality comparison posters in the "stores" might not be a great idea, people may just think "touch up" or trick, as in the notorious, recent, video commercial.
    Nokia needs a top notch ad agency to show lots and lots of potential customers the wonders of the Lumia, and to have the phone in lots and lots of stores.
    Mr.Elop seems to have his head in the sand concerning marketing and sales is all about marketing...... I despair.
