Despite being a harsh wilderness with no room but to the toughest flora and fauna, Lapland is also home to unique landscapes filled with overwhelming natural beauty, yet to be fully touched by the destructive hands of mankind.
So how about buying yourself a piece of Lapland?
Sounds crazy? It’s not. Even more so, it’s relatively cheap as well, if you do the purchase through Geocollectors.
Geocollectors is a Finnish company that made it to domestic headlines with a rather peculiar business model: they acquire land from exotic locations, in this case Lapland, after... Read More

We knew when it was announced that Microsoft was going to buy Nokia Devices and Services that it would lead to cuts in the workforce. It was hoped that a lot of that had been done in the lead up to the sale, with many people having left the company to find work with other big names, or start their own companies.
