Nokia's smartphone division may have been officially acquired by Microsoft two weeks ago, but that doesn't mean that the long-time Apple rival gets to enjoy the Finnish smartphone maker's talent as well.

While you're waiting for that registration to open, why not soak in a few stories you might have missed from the last few days?
