About this Episode

This week the team cover the sale of Nokia's smartphone and feature-phone businesses to Microsoft. Rafe schools us on how and why it really happened and we ask whether someone so knowledgeable about the deal really be blameless... really?

The team reminisce about favourite Nokia phones and wonder how Ben made it to 2013 having never owned an N95. We also pause briefly (very briefly) to discuss how - annoyingly - you need to ignore the realities of proper corporate governance if you want to believe the conspiracy theories.

Goodbye Nokia-branded smartphones and all the best to all those affected by the sale.
