    This is because most european systems (the notable exception being the English Common Law that the US's system is based on) are focused on fairness and justice, which come a distant third behind supporting the legal professions, which is the priority in the "anglo" regions.

  • Facebook buying VR headset maker Oculus for up to $2.3B [View news story]
    Another thing, ben, is the body language thing, and what you think of as "social skills"; my kind don't look for hidden meanings in the uttering of others, as we tend to just say what we mean, without all those allusions and evasions which so many (especially women) deem essential. As such, we don't need to compensate with those pecking orders and artificial courtesies, which is what "social skill" really amounts to. This translates to you as a lack of "personality".

    It's a case of like personalities attract alike, and vice versa; for some reason I've never been able to define, Jobs got up my nose, but from the signs, BG and me would get on like a house on fire (along with the Zuck, WB, Bram Cohen and others). You see "Americans" as special, but I suspect BG, like me, sees himself more of a World citizen.

    They may be "estimates" but they at least have substance and a degree of confidence. Most new ventures fail.

    Not necessarily a bad sign either; would you plonk all your money on just one stock?

    I wondered about that, too, RJ. Wouldn't the design office (where the "genius" is) have been a part of the division, and so sold off with the rest of it? I'd have expected MS to make sure of that!

    Eh? Nokia is in the process of exiting the phone business, and so has zero potential in that field!

    That's about the only way they'll benefit from this "news"!

    It might help MS prices, but the sale is a done deal in monetary terms, so how will a dubious) splurge in new sales effect Nokia? Do you imagine MS will throw them a bonus?
