Creative, in hard times

as we all know i'm a huge Nokia Fan. and this article just proves that they are number 1 not just in what they make but how they run their company. as alot of companies fire, and force ealry retirement onto itsd people, Nokia has taken a creative high road. that other companies should use as well.
