It's strange how most large, long-running companies started out doing something so far removed from what they specialise in nowadays.

Great to see so many people answering Nokia's founding date correctly; over 50%!

This fact I find most ridiculous. Nokia's ancient! IBM celebrated it's 100th anniversary last year, whereas Nokia will celebrate it's 150th birthday in 2015. It reached 100th, several years before the first mobile phone was invented.
