James Ashton: When I was being told of Nokia's strength the death spiral was not far away

Despite the notion that modern technology changes in the blink of an eye, time passes so slowly in some of the corporations that are supposed to be at the cutting edge.

James Moore: Nokia's ringtone sounds like a dying lament

Outlook Nokia was once a dull Finnish industrial conglomerate. Perhaps it should have stayed that way.

When haughty people say they don't buy stuff on the basis of a brand, what they tend to mean is that they buy stuff on the basis of a slightly more rarefied brand. I am one of these people. I sneer at those grotty teenage boys who buy Lynx deodorant because they think it will make them irresistible to women, but I buy Apple products, nominally because they work really well and are aesthetically pleasing, but probably really because I believe they imbue me with an appealingly hip kind of efficiency that I would otherwise altogether lack.
