Euro trade commish criticises Chinese telecoms subsidies

Funny

I never saw those commissioners complaining about the European companies that keep their businesses sucking Brussels subsidies by moving their factories toward new EU entrants. And lastly, they outsourced to Africa, South America and Asia. Parasites, in my opinion. Guess what, the majority are from Central Europe and Scandinavia.

Nokia: ALL our Windows Phone 8 Lumias will get a cool 8.1 boost

JahBless
Bronze badge
Stop

Re: $599

Again, Nokia/Microsoft, I don't see them selling their top-notch phone for a bargain.

Also, setting a high price gives the impression of a premium product, but that doesn’t help much . If MS sold all their phones much cheaper than their rivals, the risk that Joe Public thinks they're cheap because they're budget products is zero, they simply don't care about expensive Lumias.

But Joe Public ends buying Lumias because they have the label "NOKIA", not because it has Windows Phone inside, not because the OS is made by Microsoft or because they have premium optics.

You're screwed whatever you do :)

Re: $599

Well, considering that Nokia/Microsoft are struggling to sell high-end devices running Windows Phone (the cheapish 520 beating them), maybe offering a different OS isn't such a bad move since the release of the X models got a lot of press attention.

Re: I don't get it

I'm not talking about the lunatics, but the coders. Not that there isn't lunatics as well among coders, but, looking at what they do(and did), we are talking about bright people, and, I suppose, highly educated. Maybe the NSA recruits only the most narcissistic ones...

Re: Apple just isn't world class in security, and never have been

Re: Very cool

I whish more people stopped with the nonsense that schools must transform the kids in some kind of Einsteins or daVincis, As in any other job, there are directives to follow, and because of the bureaucracy that the Governments love to impose, less flexibility and time to be "creative". As a parent, it's ME who must encourage my kid to use the "tools" and knowledge that schools provide. But I guess that people think shows like x-factor, Big Brother,etc,etc, are more "creative" and better "models" for kids to follow.

P.S. try to be "creative" at work and see what your boss thinks about that.

Re: @ Destroy All Monsters

" you toss him out of the plane and he's not going to find his next job as easy as the techie who has head hunters calling him 24/7"

Do you know a guy by the name Setphen Elop? That kind of CEOs are a must have in any head hunter list. Imagine this conversation:

Board director: "Hello? I'm speaking with <head hunter>?"

hh: "Yes, how can I help you sir?"

Bd: "We need a someone to be our new CEO. As usual, the person to be hired must be clueless, stupid, ignorant and who can carry all the blames if something goes wrong, because its the board members who are in charge you know?"

hh: "Sir, you are a lucky chap, we have 3 great names to recommend: Léo Apotheker, Stephen Elop and the cherry on the top...Steve Ballmer!"

Re: "Having faced down the totalitarian dangers of fascism and communism"

" I don't think that modern day Portugese would be overly happy being called Hispanic"

Not because we would feel insulted but because it would be a sign of ignorance from the person who was saying it, and we love(not) ignorants :)

But we do feel insulted when foreigners insist talking in spanish with us (especially the spanish people, the fact that we kick their arses many times in history don't help I guess eheheh). At least, unlike most of the Americans who visit Europe and intoduce themselves as Canadians, we don't go abroad and say that we are spanish :-P
