good god, everyone here has known Corrections = DED ever since he started using that ID after dropping Price McLean. i mean, you must be kidding ...
  um ... but the onscreen is what users actually see. i think, you know,  that is what really matters ...
yup, Lollipop - perfect for suckers.
Actually, Samsung brought down Nokia. it grabbed the global generic phone market away from it by quickly adopting knock-off Android while Nokia failed to replace its outmoded Symbian. plain old competition that Nokia failed to meet.   but then Microsoft literally killed off Nokia. it fooled its idiot (Finland) board of directors into hiring Elop in response to this, who then foisted MS' dead-end Windows Phone OS on Nokia totally, leaving it a basket case that MS finally...
