Earlier this week there was a report out of China that supposedly quoted Nokia China’s president who “confirmed” the company’s plans to return to handset manufacturing. This was somewhat exciting news as it has been speculated that this could mean we could look forward to some Nokia-made Android handsets.
Unfortunately it seems that the report is not true. According to an official statement released by Nokia, “Nokia notes recent news reports claiming the company communicated an intention to manufacture consumer handsets out of a R&D facility in China. These reports are false, and include comments incorrectly attributed to a Nokia Networks executive. Nokia reiterates it currently has no plans to manufacture or sell consumer handsets.” Read full post →Nokia Denies Plans Of Returning To Handset Manufacturing
If you thought that Starbucks’ drinks were always a tad expensive, then today would have been a great day to capitalize on the company’s network outage. It seems that due to the systems going down, the coffee chain’s point-of-sales system was affected as well which forced the company to give away free drinks.
It was initially thought that it was a localized issue but it turns out that not only did it affect Starbucks outlets nationwide, but it even affected outlets all the way in Canada.
