So, Nokia SIEMENS Networks next???

How long before THIS 'joint venture' - with it seems, the majority of the new middle management not wishing for us Brits to mention the war or 1966, goes tits-up. Seen the operating margin recently? Pants!

<<Operating loss in Nokia Siemens Networks was EUR 1 million (EUR 120 million), representing an operating margin of 0% (-3.3%). >>

As an aside, from Nokia's Investor pages, the following gem leaps up:

IMPACT?? Yep, had that awhile ago, when made redundant. It means a smack in the bollocks with a very large hammer. Now, that's quite an **impact**.

Siemens going back into heavy machinery? Tanks, artillery, maybe?

Had my Fujitsu Siemens tower for over 8 years with never a glitch.

No wonder Fujitsu want to ditch the PC market having made their PC's so reliable.
