Microsoft's Nokia takeover
Well, that Nokia/Microsoft news went down pretty much exactly as I predicted it would.
... Microsoft will purchase substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business, license Nokia’s patents, and license and use Nokia’s mapping services...
I am a little surprised that Microsoft didn't also get Here, the mapping business. I think Here would have made a nice addition for Microsoft, to compete with Google Maps.
Here's what I predict should happen next, or at least what I've been telling everyone to do WRT the cellular industry.
There, that wasn't that complicated was it.
You should expect my prediction to become a reality once those following me at Microsoft read this post.
Actually, I interviewed at Skype a couple of years ago. They were trying to get me there to work on a companion device for Skype. I was convinced they (Microsoft) were going to do what I propose here. I gave them too much credit.
