Nokia sign dismantled, with letters rearranged to spell 'ONKIA'

A dismantled Nokia sign at Oulu's Technology Village, Finland

Reg reader Andy Crofts snapped the above picture - after re-arranging the Nokia sign to read "ONKIA", the Finnish verb to fish with a rod and line.

Andy was inspired by a story on YLE, Finland's public broadcaster, about the downgrading of Nokia's credit status. "It was the photo that got me," he says.

"The article gave me a clue that I could find that sign about five kilometres away. Took about an hour to locate it. Unfortunately, it was too heavy to steal, especially as I had only a bike, and my mate with a pickup was far too rat-faced to nick it.

So...NOKIA - 'Connecting People'
So...ONKIA - 'Disconnecting Fishes'

Didn't take much thinking, just a lot of muscle power."

Thanks Andy, well worth the effort. ®
