Nokia was formed from three divisions. Approximately 2/3 of the company was the mobile phone division, about a quarter was networks and remains was the navigation.

Mobile phones collapsed and is now dead, with remains sold off to foxconn after the rights to the brand name came back from microsoft. Navigation business was there to help the mobile phone, and it was sold off asap. The only part that remains of nokia is the network business, which was a completely separate division within the old company with little to no synergies with the rest of the business.

Which is why it survived.

You can pull all of the telemetry "updates" without sacrificing the rest. It helps to actually read the descriptions of the updates you're installing. They're not all that cryptic. If it it's an update to "cusotmer experience", "telemetry" or "windows update", don't check the box and hide the update.

PC master race reddit has a good summary of older ones here:

There have been a couple of newer telemetry updates since then. Read what you're installing. Since win7 is not receiving any updates other than security, telemetry BS and windows update BS, it's not even all that much reading.

Many living in modern society forget the primacy of sovereign state over capital. Especially when that sovereign state has your finances and your physical presence by the balls.

The reason why it looks to be the other way around is corruption induced by said capital, and why people in the system are afraid of Trump. He may actually exercise state primacy over capital.

Winamp remained relevant throughout the ages. Issue companies and shills take with it is that it's not monetizeable, simply because it's a perfectly working product that doesn't need any major updates and isn't dependent on developer's servers.

It just works on user's computer, and remains among the best if not the best audio player on windows to date.
