"So, whatever happened to the "Windows 7 group"...?"

Wasn't that the same group that was responsible for W8? Funny some people want to paint the team responsible for W7 as heroes, where...

Microsoft Announces 9 New Windows Phone Hardware Partners, New OS Features Commented on: 1 year ago (February 23, 2014)

I think a Lenovo WP (or, even more so, a "Motorola" WP) makes a lot of sense for the US market. Since they are the most successful PC OEM out there, WP seemed a logical step (particularly with...

Is This Really Why Microsoft Made Windows 8? Commented on: 1 year ago (February 20, 2014)

Windows Phone 8.1 Feature Set Possibly Leaked Commented on: 1 year ago (February 11, 2014)
