Top Colleges That Enroll Rich, Middle Class and Poor - NYTimes.com
9/8/14 - Colleges with similar resources admit very different numbers of low-income undergraduates. Some wealthy colleges admit many such students, but others do not.

Samsung aventaja a Nokia en Europa occidental en lo que va del 2011
Por primera vez en años, Nokia pierde la hegemonía en el mercado de móviles en el viejo continente. Samsung, la compañía surcoreana, ahora es el líder en esta región del planeta.

Según la firma de investigación IDC durante el primer trimestre de este 2011, las ventas de Samsung aumentaron un 5% interanual en Europa occidental, su cuota de mercado llegó a l 29%. Mientras tanto las ventas de Nokia cayeron un 10% y su cuota de mercado bajo al 28%.

Ya desde hace tiempo se sabía que Nokia estaba en una trepitosa caída y que pronto se verían los resultados de no haber puesto atención antes a este tema. Ahora habrá que esperar para ver si su alianza con Microsoft los ayuda a recuperar el mercado perdido. Lo veo difícil.
