                            The nokia lumia windows phone deserved to fail. It was a lemon from the beginning. Awful call quality and it would just turn off. I had a dream of my phone easily syncing...

                                            To add to what is now Nokia 2.0, they merged with Alcatel-lucent so they could have a chunk of the Radio Base Station (RBS) market that supplies equipment to the carriers for their cell towers (Alcatel originally was a French company and Lucent was an American business that merged a while back) I worked for Nokia 2.0 for about 9 months changing out all of the LTE RBS equipment and replacing it with their “upgraded” Airscale RBS equipment that will support the introduction of the 5G components . Those 9 months was like nothing I’ve ever seen, they are going to bury themselves because there is no allocated responsibilities for all of the overpaid idiots working in upper management and deployment teams. Lucent started this mess originally and then brought in slumping French owned Alcatel to the losers table, and now they’ve sucked in Nokia because they want a volatile house of cards to show that they are progressing in the right direction. Either Nokia will need to clean house after 5G deployment has commenced or they will be back in the grave sooner than later. It’s as simple as that!

The Xerox one is pretty insane though. To be innovated enough to come up with that OS at the time and not figure a way to monetize, and instead show competitors what you've come up with? As someone who doesn't care for Apple, I still fill no pity for Xerox, they were dumb.

In a high tech industry, do not let arrogant old white man with no creativity and imagination make life-death corporate decisions. One arrogant old white man after another ran their companies into the dust, sort of like Donald Trump!
