Couple of quick hits.

The post I linked to yesterday on how A-Level choices strongly affect your later education has some fascinating discussion on it. You could also do worse than adding philmophlegm.

Nokia and Microsoft have announced a tie-up on smartphones. Which baffles me completely. So far as I can see, MS totally control the interface for their phones. Which means that Nokia can't differentiate itself except on the hardware (i.e. a nicer camera). Much though I went off the interface for Symbian later on, it did seem to be the thing that Nokia smartphone fans kept harking back to. I just can't see what Nokia gain from turning themselves from providers of the complete smartphone into hardware manufacturers - all the reviews of MS smartphones I've seen so far indicate that who makes them doesn't actually affect them very much at all. Someone care to enlighten me?
