Bomb Attempt on the Chancellor of Germany Today with World’s Oldest Bomb

Technically there is no world's oldest bomb in existence since, of course, it's exploded. However, if you were hanging out in Berlin at German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office today, you were privy to the info first that there very well could have been an explosion of the malicious type in your general area. What was so strange about this bomb, other than it was delivered on a day that the Chancellor was in Belgium, not her office in Berlin, that day?

Nokia putting Microsoft Office Mobile on Eseries smartphones; collaboration apps still to come

Nokia have confirmed that they have no plans to make a Windows Mobile based smartphone, although the Finnish company will be working more closely with Microsoft in future.  The two firms have just announced that they will be collaborating to put a mobile version of Office, together with communication and device management software, on Symbian-based devices, a platform Nokia says it is still committed to.

The mobile apps will arrive on the Nokia Eseries of smartphones first, the company's business-focussed range.  After that, while there's no confirmation as yet, it seems likely that other high-end devices - such as the Nseries of multimedia handsets - will get access to at least some of the software.
