I just wanted to see if you wet yourself when I said it. I know you have shares in Nokia
heh nice one...
btw. is there SSH client for iPhone?? I know that there is port of putty for S60 and I use it
No idea. i have a similar app on my E71. Cant say I have ever had a use for it mind you.
Actually They do, They have over 30 Billion CASH ON HAND.
They're like Scrooge Mcduck, from Duck Tales. How You think Steve Got that Liver? CIA probably Assassinated a homeless man for em :evil:
Apple Market Cap
Apple could Eat Nokia for lunch and still have room to start World war 3.
There is an SSH client, if you Give it a get out of jail free card.
but is nokia up for grabs
I didn't actually know APPLE had that kind of cash on hand, thats insane. I know their 60 day stock purchase of all ATI's 4850 video cards would have cost a fair bit mind you.
To be perfectly honest, If Nokia does win this one against Apple then it wouldn't surprise me if the iPhone is taken off the market. Either that or Apple takes a nasty kick in the wallet and buys some rights to use Nokia's patents.
The iphone wont go off the market. thats a ridiculous assumption. What Nokia are suing for is actually a breach of a patent inside the iphone, its nothing that actually is massively important to the production of the phone. Nokia would much rather get a financial payment for this, and Apple can clearly already afford it. These matters take time as Apple will battle any costs to get them as low as possible. Just how business operates. Nokia are taking on a giant here, it won't be easy. Microsoft have had many strong cases against them and in the end they just pay off the other parties, im sure the same will happen here.
Hope Nokia will milk Apple right. No hater
lol... 30 Billion isn't enough Nokias net worth is far greater than that.... And Nokia too has deep pockets of money
[EDIT] it has been estimated that Nokia have put over 40 Billion euros to the research and development of the patents that they claim that Apple is violating... And there is large amount of other companies that are paying license fees to Nokia. This will make the case stronger for Nokia. Remember the battle with Qualcomm ... They might sue Apple too ... And Ericson ...
40 billion euros. lol, did you just make that up?
It always amazes me the lengths people on forums will go to defend the company of a product they own and like. This Apple and Nokia thread is turning into iphone owners v Nokia phone owners.
I own a phone, but I gotta say I don't give a crap about the company who own it, unless they start paying my car finance payments and my mortgage.
Come on Z. Why wouldn't they have a lot of $$$?
They've been selling $500.00 computers for $2,000.00 for years now
It really is a wasted cause even discussing Apple on these forums. Although they always say, the older they get, the more narrowminded they become. :w00t:
I hope I die young !
I hear they are doing a cheap, old man range with AMD cpu's (or Atom's) and plastic chassis, crap screens and tiny little keyboards. Kinda like a glorified calculator and only $299!
Oh wait - hang on, Asus already did that. :rofl:
Id love to work out the productivity of the 'overpriced' computers Z uses to help maintain our favourite tech site and work out the productivity of your $500 machine
Deep breaths guys. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10!
I wouldn't worry about saying things are overpriced. its all relative.
I have a dual CPU Nehalem EP PC system here I built which is probably worth about $10k - id reckon many people would class that as overpriced too. Its all relative to what you want at the end of the day, right?
I call it the 'Z Principle' = income+desire+endproduct = happiness.
I will try and continue to educate fanatics though, both on Mac forums and on PC centric forums. Sure, its pointless, but its fun.
Nope I got that figure from an article in Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat...
yeah thats 40 billion over 20 years. perfectly feasible research/costs. Microsoft for instance spent 7.4 billion just on research in 2007 alone !
According to Nokias Q3 Report Nokia put around 1500 million € to research in 7-9/2009...
Apple's figures : Apple Reports Fourth Quarter Results
Why is Apple's profits in discussion? Since when should a person or a company be apologetic for making money? Go back to North Korea.
