    End of Nokia is near??

    HELSINKI — Nokia Corp.'s second-quarter report Thursday is expected to be short on good news following a profit warning on June 14 and a sharp U.S. price cut this week for the Lumia 900, the Windows device that was supposed to boost the company's position in America. WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Investors will be looking carefully at Nokia's sales of smartphones, especially its high-end Lumia line of devices running on Microsoft's Windows Phone software. Nokia and AT&T this week halved the price of the flagship Lumia 900 to $50 in the U.S., raising questions about how the phone is selling just three months after its introduction. Nokia called the cut "a normal strategy that is put in place during the life cycle of most phones." After dominating the global cell phone market for more than a decade, Nokia has lost out to Apple and Samsung in smartphones and is now also losing ground to Samsung and other makers when it comes to lower-end devices. Research firm Gartner said in June that Samsung overtook Nokia as the world's top cell phone maker in the first quarter, with 86.6 million units sold, compared to 83 million for Nokia. The Finnish company had been No. 1 for 14 years. Nokia's global market share has steadily shrunk from the peak of 40 percent in 2008 to 29 percent in 2011 and is expected to dwindle further this year. Meanwhile, Nokia shares have fallen to their lowest level since the 1990's, plunging below í ‘íºº in mid-June. Nokia warned last month that increased competition in the smartphone market would affect its operating margins in the second and third quarters. It remains unclear whether the team-up with Microsoft last year will help reverse Nokia's slide and raise the company's profile in the U.S., where it has struggled to win market share. THE BIG PICTURE: Nokia's decline underscores how Europe has lost its edge in the mobile industry. The ailing Finnish company — once the market bellwether — is now moving its manufacturing to Asia. Last month Nokia announced plans to slash 10,000 jobs and close down research and development facilities in Ulm, Germany, and Burnaby, Canada, as well as its main manufacturing plant in Salo, Finland. WHAT'S EXPECTED: Analyst Hannu Rauhala from Pohjola Pankki in Helsinki said that "no beautiful figures can be expected" on Thursday. "We can expect a loss for sure. Focus will largely be on what kind of guidance the company will give for the third quarter," he said. "Visibility on the company's business is very short. I mainly expect to hear how the company is planning to defend its position in the transition phase from the older Windows Phone operating system to the new one." LAST YEAR'S QUARTER: In the second quarter of 2011, Nokia reported a � million loss on revenue of í ‘í».3 billion. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505245_162-57474011/loss-expected-for-nokia-in-2nd-quarter/ Use Nokia since 2004, with N-Gage. Just change my cell phone. Nokia is tough cell phone. Sad news for people who will get fired. Question 1. Why Nokia not changed its CEO?? 2. Is This conspiracy use by M$ to buy Nokia with cheapest as possible?? Its CEO is former M$ 3. Is this for effect because Nokia not used android as its OS??

    SOPA - Internet as we know it about to be gone?

    White House Won’t Back Internet Censorship The Obama administration won’t back legislation to combat online piracy if it encourages censorship, undermines cybersecurity or disrupts the structure of the Internet, three White House technology officials said. Their statement, posted yesterday on the White House website, was a response to online petitions on legislative proposals to combat online piracy. The movie and music industries support such measures as a means of cracking down on theft. “While we believe that online piracy by foreign websites is a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response, we will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet,†Aneesh Chopra, Victoria Espinel and Howard Schmidt wrote in a blog post. The statement marks the administration’s most significant foray into a fight between content creators and Internet companies that has been playing out in Congress. The Senate is scheduled to hold a procedural vote Jan. 24 on starting debate on an anti-piracy bill. Chopra is the U.S. chief technology officer, Espinel is the coordinator for intellectual property enforcement in the Office of Management and Budget, and Schmidt is the White House cybersecurity coordinator. The officials called on Congress to pass legislation this year to combat online piracy. They also wrote that the White House would soon be hosting a conference call with supporters of the petitions as well as an online event. House Chairman’s Statement U.S. Representative Lamar Smith, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said his Stop Online Piracy Act meets the administration’s tests. Smith announced on Jan. 13 that he would remove a provision that would require Internet service providers, when ordered by a court, to block access to non-U.S. websites offering pirated content or counterfeit goods. The bill’s opponents say this could hurt the domain-name system. In a statement yesterday, Smith said that censorship doesn’t include enforcing laws against “foreign thieves†who steal content. “Congress cannot stand by and do nothing while some of America’s most profitable and productive industries are under attack,†said Smith, a Texas Republican. Internet Companies Opposed Google Inc. (GOOG), Facebook Inc. and other Internet companies oppose Smith’s bill and companion legislation in the Senate. They say it will promote online censorship and threaten the growth of the U.S. technology industry. The Motion Picture Association of America, which supports anti-piracy efforts, applauded the White House call for legislation. “For too long in this debate, those that seek to preserve and profit from the status quo have moved to obstruct reasonable legislation,†said Michael O’Leary, the group’s senior executive vice president for global policy and external affairs. O’Leary said in the statement that “meaningful†legislation “must include measured and reasonable remedies that include ad brokers, payment processors and search engines.†Members of the Washington-based MPAA include the studio arms of The Walt Disney Co. and Time Warner Inc. Hearing Postponed Representative Darrell Issa said yesterday that he would postpone a hearing on the bill that had been scheduled for Jan. 18. Even with the changes made by Smith, Issa said, the bill is still “fundamentally flawed.†Issa, a California Republican who is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said he has assurances from House leaders that the bill won’t go to the floor without a consensus. He has proposed an alternative approach. “The voice of the Internet community has been heard,†Issa said in a statement. “Much more education for members of Congress about the workings of the Internet is essential if anti-piracy legislation is to be workable and achieve broad appeal.†Smith’s bill is H.R. 3261. The Senate bill is S. 968. _http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-01-14/white-house-won-t-support-internet-censorship-in-online-anti-piracy-bills.html So, is that mean this Law will not pass??
  6. So, in the future, no more handicap man, where he lost his eye or blind from born.

    Is this somekind of joke?? U.S. District Court Rules Iran Behind 9/11 Attacks _http://www.bloomberg.com/article/2011-12-23/aYoOcZ6NT3wo.html U.S. District Court Rules Iran Behind 9/11 Attacks PR Newswire NEW YORK, December 23, 2011 NEW YORK, December 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A federal district court in Manhattan yesterday entered a historic ruling that reveals new facts about Iran's support of al Qaeda in the 9/11 attacks. U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels ruled yesterday that Iran and Hezbollah materially and directly supported al Qaeda in the September 11, 2001 attacks and are legally responsible for damages to hundreds of family members of 9/11 victims who are plaintiffs in the case. Judge Daniels had announced his ruling in Havlish, et al. v. bin Laden, et al. , in open court on Thursday, December 15, 2011, following a three-hour courtroom presentation by the families' attorneys. Judge Daniels entered a written Order of Judgment yesterday backed by 53 pages of detailed Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law. Fiona Havlish, whose husband Donald perished in the World Trade Center North Tower on 9/11 said, "This is a historic day. For ten years we've wanted the truth to be known about who was responsible for our losses. Now we have that answer." Ellen Saracini, the wife of United Airlines 175 pilot Victor Saracini, which the hijackers crashed into the WTC South Tower, said after the hearing last Thursday, "We just came from Judge Daniels' court where he ruled in favor of holding accountable those who perpetrated the attacks of 9/11... I just smiled up to Victor and I said we're still thinking about you ... we're there for you ... we'll always be there for you. But today's very special." In Havlish, et al. v. bin La den, et al. , Judge Daniels held that the Islamic Republic of Iran, its Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei, former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, and Iran's agencies and instrumentalities, including, among others, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps ("IRGC"), the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security ("MOIS"), and Iran's terrorist proxy Hezbollah, all materially aided and supported al Qaeda before and after 9/11. "The families have waited a very long time for this day and they have been through a lot. So I was greatly relieved that the families received an answer to the question that they asked me ten years ago: they asked who was the responsible party? How did this happen? Today a federal court judge has said that a principal responsible party is the Islamic Republic of Iran," said Thomas E. Mellon, Jr. of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, law firm of Mellon Webster & Shelly, the lead attorney for the Havlish plaintiffs. The evidence was developed over a seven-year international investigation by the Havlish attorneys who pursued the 9/11 Commission's recommendation regarding an apparent link between Iran, Hezbollah, and the 9/11 hijackers, following the Commission's own eleventh-hour discovery of significant National Security Agency ("NSA") intercepts: "We believe this topic requires further investigation by the U.S. government." 9/11 Commission Report, p. 241. The Havlish evidence included sworn testimony and affidavits from the following: * Ten expert witnesses including three former 9/11 Commission staff members, two former CIA case officers, two investigative journalists, and an Iran analyst who has testified in 25 cases involving Iranian terrorism. * Three Iranian defectors who were operatives of MOIS and the IRGC. Witness X, whose dramatic testimony was previously filed under seal, was revealed to be Abolghasem Mesbahi, a former MOIS operative in charge of Iran's espionage operations in Western Europe. Judge Daniels found that Mesbahi has testified in numerous prosecutions of Iranian and Hezbollah terrorists, including the Mykonos case in Germany and the AMIA case in Argentina, and found to be highly reliable and credible. Judge Daniels also credited Mesbahi's testimony that he received messages during the summer of 2001 from inside the Iranian government that an Iranian contingency plan for unconventional warfare against the U.S. called " Shaitan dar Atash " had been activated. "This is compelling proof that Iran was deeply involved in the 9/11 conspiracy," said Tim Fleming, lead investigative attorney for the Havlish group. Included among Judge Daniels' findings in Havlish are the following: * Members of the 9/11 Commission staff testified that Iran aided the hijackers by concealing their travel through Iran to access al Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan. Iranian border inspectors refrained from stamping the passports of 8 to 10 of the 9/11 hijackers because evidence of travel through Iran would have prevented the hijackers from obtaining visas at U.S. embassies abroad or gaining entry into the United States. The 9/11 Commission Report addressed these facts and called for further investigation. 9/11 Commission Report at pp. 240-41. * Expert and U.S. government evidence also confirmed that Iran facilitated the escape of al Qaeda leaders and members from the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan into Iran and provided safe haven inside Iran after 9/11. * Abolghasem Mesbahi testified he was part of an IRGC-MOIS task force that designed contingency plans for unconventional warfare against the U.S., code-named " Shaitan dar Atash " ("Satan in Flames") which included crashing hijacked passenger airliners into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the White House. During the weeks before 9/11, Mesbahi received three coded messages from a source inside Iran's government indicating that the Shaitan dar Atash plan had been activated. * Mesbahi also testified that in 2000 Iran used front companies to obtain a Boeing 757-767-777 flight simulator for training the terrorists. Due to U.S. trade sanctions, Iran has never had any Boeing 757-767-777 aircraft, but all the airplanes hijacked on 9/11 were Boeing 757 or 767 aircraft. * A May 14, 2001 memorandum from inside the Iranian government demonstrating that Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, was aware of the impending attacks and instructing intelligence operatives to restrict communications to existing contacts with al Qaeda's Ayman al Zawahiri and Hizballah's Imad Mughniyah. * Documents obtained from German federal prosecutors showing that 9/11 coordinator Ramzi Binalshihb traveled to Iran in January 2001 on his way to Afghanistan to brief Osama bin Laden on the plot's progress. * Evidence from the 9/11 Commission Report that a "senior Hezbollah operative," which the Havlish evidence identifies as Hezbollah terrorist chief Imad Mughniyah, coordinated activities in Saudi Arabia and was present (or his associate) on flights the hijackers took to and from Beirut and Iran. 9/11 Commission Report at pp. 240-41. Mughniyah, a longtime agent of Iran, orchestrated a string of terror operations against the U.S. and Israel during the 1980s and 1990s. He was assassinated in Syria in February of 2008. Attorneys emphasized that it is important to understand that Iran, Hezbollah, and al Qaeda formed a terror alliance in the early 1990s. The attorneys cited their national security and intelligence experts, including Dr. Patrick Clawson, Dr. Bruce Tefft, Clare Lopez, Kenneth Timmerman, Dr. Ronen Bergman, Edgar Adamson, and 9/11 Commission staff members Dietrich Snell, Dr. Daniel Byman, and Janice Kephart, as well as the published writings of Robert Baer, to explain how the pragmatic terror leaders overcame the Sunni-Shi'a divide in order to confront the U.S. (the "Great Satan") and Israel (the "Lesser Satan"). Iran and Hezbollah then provided training to members of al Qaeda in, among other things, the use of explosives to destroy large buildings. The Iran-Hezbollah-al Qaeda alliance led to terror strikes against the U.S. at Khobar Towers, Saudi Arabia (1996), the simultaneous U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania (1998), and the USS Cole (2000). Shortly after the Cole attack, Iran was facilitating the international travel of the 9/11 hijackers. "It was a wonderful day. A great day where the truth was finally revealed in a court of law with strong, strong evidence. The judge allowed us to put on and present all the evidence that we had filed directly or under seal and he accepted it and made a ruling in our favor," said Dennis Pantazis, one of the Havlish attorneys. "Now we go on to prove damages for each one of the family members," he added. The case is Fiona Havlish, et al v. Usama Bin Laden, et al, 03-CV-9848 (GBD), and is part of the consolidated proceeding In Re Terrorist Attacks on Septemb er 11, 2001, Civil Action No. 03 MDL 1570 (GBD).
