Newbusiness, new ideas!
I reckon that a lot of people are going to be keeping their eyes on this company now that the merger has been confirmed. It'll be interesting to see what kind of things and new products / technologies they are able to come up with. Hopefully they'll be able to utilise the strengths of each company to come up with a truly revolutionarily new idea!
