There are what, 1-2 billion people currently on the internet at any one time (probably exceeds that).
I seriously doubt this figure. China, India and Africa add up to about half of the worlds population, and from what I've gathered they barely have the broadband penetration to have one people in six on the net every day. Having one people in six on the internet at any given time would mean that something like 30% of the population in the western world is online right now, always.
The problem with Nokia, atleast here in the states, is that they are slowly outsourcing their "idea" people. New designs and development are being put everywhere now. Hell, the buildings here in Irving went from 4 full buildings full of employees to just one building with enough people to only fill 4 (of 7) floors. I get a kick off seeing their EMF room, but they hardly use it because everything is developed out of states.
That might, just might, be because of Nokia is not from the states. You did know that, didn't you? The buildings here in Helsinki are still full
Never seen a illegal software shop in any Nordic country
That's what you get with state subsidized broadband - who on earth would buy pirated software when a 100Mb, non-capped, ethernet-based, you-really-do-get-100Mb connection costs about 45 euros.
Failure is more frequently from want of energy than want of capital.
