Description: Brian chats with Ben Bajarin (@benbajarin), Bob Egan (@bobegan) and Matt Rosoff (@mattrosoff) as a panel and they discuss the Microsoft buyout of Nokia Devices and Services announced early this week. They have a wide-ranging and fun discussion that starts with whether the buyout was needed, whether it was worth how much Microsoft is offering to pay for it, and goes through to what we might see next from Microsoft and in the industry.

Topic 1 – Microsoft marries Nokia – shotgun or not?
Topic 2 – Was the dowry worth it? Is Microsoft paying enough for Nokia?
Topic 3 – Strategically, can this work for Microsoft? How does the next CEO play into 
this? Should Elop be the next CEO? How does Microsoft succeed?
Topic 4 – The Nokia name – what happens to the brand?
Topic 5 – Nokia – what’s next?
Topic 6 – Blackberry, HTC, Intel, what’s next?
