This is funny. The Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb said that Apple is responsible for the economic downturn in Finland.

Apple is now accused of endangering countries. Finland's Prime Minister Alexander Stubb says that Apple is responsible for the economic downturn and ratings downgrade of the country. How can that be? Stubb said in an interview with CNBC"

"A little bit paradoxically I guess one could say that the iPhone killed Nokia and the iPad killed the Finnish paper industry, but we'll make a comeback."

Damn you Apple! How can you be so cruel? The poor Finns. Seriously. To blame the iPad for demise of paper is really far fetched. Ever since the digital revolution began the paper industry is under pressure. On the other hand these HP printers eat a lot of paper.

To blame the iPhone to kill Nokia is too much credit for Apple. Nokia just did not adjust to the touchscreen. Other's like Samsung had no issue evolving the smartphone.
