Tumblr CEO David Karp has just announced that it will launch a brand new iOS app next week. This announcement was made just now at F.ounders, the highly prestigious event we called the Rolls Royce of technology events. Karp said that there wont be ads on the app immediately, but they are planned and will be implemented soon after launch.

Mark Zuckerberg Is Worth More Than Nokia

On Friday, a day after announcing it was slashing 10,000 jobs, the Finland-based company was worth about $9.3 billion on the New York Stock Exchange. That’s a mighty fall from the middle of 2000, when Nokia’s market cap neared $269 billion as cell phones first became ubiquitous.


Ouch. 
Also, look at the macro-trend. Two companies are trending upwards (Apple, Google). While two are trending downwards (Microsoft, Nokia). Just thinking about the companies the past 10+ years in general terms, this alignment makes perfect sense. 

Nokia needs a Steve Job…
