The news itself was not so surprising. Microsoft bought Nokia's mobile business, 32,000 employees and Stephen Elop, who is now safely back in the fold, for $7.2B. Nice move since this was from overseas funds which had been protected from US corporate taxes. Welcome back Stephen, and with a debt of gratitude for nixing Nokia's Symbian and adopting Microsoft's Windows Phone operating systems for Nokia's smartphones (sort of like a Trojan Horse?), are there any other openings at Microsoft that might be of interest?
I guess that leaves out a potential Blackberry purchase by Microsoft, sort of like Verizon's change of mind regarding their Canadian initiatives after spending $130B to buy out Vodafone's share of their mobile unit venture - that task is now left up to the Fairfax consortium. Don't blink, or you'll miss something big!!
