Humboldt State softball returns home, sweeps doubleheader against Dominguez Hills

first_imgMcKinleyville >> With a Cal State Dominguez Hills team and its California Collegiate Athletic Association-worst ERA rolling into town, there was plenty of potential for the potent Humboldt State offense to do some serious damage.That was certainly the case in the Jacks’ first game back within Humboldt County lines.Led by senior Breonna Bejaran’s two-home run day, the No. 1-nationally ranked Jacks exploded for 15 hits as the top of the Humboldt order did major damage from the first inning …last_img

Microsoft Does Inevitable, Buys Nokia Smartphone Unit, Patents For $7.2 Billion

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#Microsoft#Nokia#smartphones#Windows Phone brian proffitt What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Nokia, the once-“burning platform” mobile devices company, is now seen to be a looked-upon savior for Microsoft. Late Labor Day evening, Microsoft announced it would be acquiring the handset and services business of Nokia, as well as licensing Nokia’s substantial patent portfolio.The all-cash deal shakes out to be €3.79 billion for Nokia’s handset business itself, and an additional €1.65 billion to license the patents, a total of €5.44 billion, which currently equates to $7.17 billion on the exchanges. Nokia will be keeping its networking, mapping and location businesses and technologies. The deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2014.Under the deal, Microsoft will also see the return of its prodigal son: former Microsoft executive turned Nokia CEO Stephen Elop will be rejoining the Microsoft team, along with 32,000 Nokia employees.See also What Microsoft Did And Didn’t Buy With Its Nokia AcquisitionThe timing of this announcement just sets up one more careening move on the Microsoft roller coaster this week, coming very soon after the announced retirement of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and the rise in power of the ValueAct Capital investment group with the Microsoft board in order to avoid a proxy fight.See also Ballmer Announces Retirement As Microsoft CEO and ValueAct To Microsoft: Start Paying Attention To Bottom LineBut while the timing of the Nokia acquisition may have been a surprise, it is also being seen as something that was perhaps a long time coming, ever since that fateful day in February 2011 Nokia’s Elop told his employees in early 2011 that Nokia’s platform was burning and that something had to change. Two days later, Nokia announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft that would ultimately see Nokia dropping work on Android and MeeGo phones in order to pin their smartphone hopes on the Windows Phone platform.But as many analysts and observers have stated time and again since the beginning of the Microsoft/Nokia partnership, the expected success has yet to materialize, with Windows Phone marketshare in the U.S. somewhere around 3%, according to comScore.See also Nokia After the Burning PlatformThe return of Elop to Microsoft’s team sets up speculation that Elop could be a possible successor to Ballmer as Microsoft CEO. It is not known what Elop’s immediate official role will be back at Microsoft.See also Microsoft’s Best Bet For Next CEO Currently Runs Another Giant CompanyMicrosoft has sought in recent months to re-make itself as a “devices and services” company, and picking up Nokia for $7.17 billion is one way to accomplish that goal. But Nokia has failed to make a market impact since Elop started leading in 2010, so how these two companies expect to succeed together when separately they were struggling, even as partners, is anyone’s guess.Image courtesy of Microsoft.center_img Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

Why did Sajid Khan thank his stars for Himmatwala debacle

first_imgDirector Sajid Khan’s Himmatwala remake was a flop and now he blames the film’s failure on his arrogance.”I am a changed man now. I was very arrogant then and I was talking anything to get attention and make statement. Now I am back on track and thank god Himmatwala flopped. In the middle, I lost it completely,” Sajid told reporters during the press conference of his next Humshakals.Sajid Khan’s Humshakals is slated for a June 20 release”I wanted people to respect me as a filmmaker. Heyy Babyy did well, then Housefull did well, so I wanted people to take me seriously. I am glad Himmatwala didn’t work,” he added.Though his Humshakals is yet to hit the screens, it is under scrutiny for being a remake of Comedy Of Errors.But shooting down the reports, Sajid said his film has “nothing to do with that film”.The star cast – Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Tamannaah Bhatia, Esha Gupta – was present at the event.However, Bipasha Basu skipped the event and Sajid said that she is “unwell”, but she will “attend other events and interviews”.It is being reported that Bipasha will not join the promotional activities of the film.When asked about it, Sajid’s response was that “it’s not true at all. Truth will come out one day. No one can hide it.”Humshakals is slated for a June 20 release.last_img read more
