Re: Microsoft buying Nokia's devices & services

The only way MS can make an impact is by extorting patent fees for obsolete and dubious "technology".

Re: Latest Firefox for Mobile (Fennec) for Fremantle

At the beginning of 2011, Firefox was at version 4. Just under 2 years later it's at version 17/18. If they continue at this rate I predict a worldwide shortage of numbers.
