re: Microsoft 'Converts' iPhones, Android Devices To Windows Phone
Interesting how microsofties quick to rebuke any valid criticism. Not even Steve Jobs style criticism "IT'S FU**NG SHIT".
Yet they are slow to adapt to people demands. Way too slow. I mean like real slow.

Street signs on my phone? You must be mad.

WP7 is bad and it sucks. Metro is ugly as hell - reason No 1.
The other reason is its counterintuitive navigation and visuals for color blind monkeys, not for people.

"windows phone 7 does not have Carrier IQ"
Prove it.

"android and iphones do"
Total nonsense. Carrier IQ is a 3rd party installed by operators, NOT by Google or Apple.

@ The Boycott MS guy.

It seems like your only argument against Windows Phone is some political beef you have with MS. Judging WP for what the device has to offer can you tell me if you have ever used a WP7.5 device, and thoroughly examined it's features? Setting the BS aside, what are the things that you don't like about Windows Phone? And, does low market share mean this new OS is Bad? What OS do you use, and why are you positive that it is better than WP?
boycott Microsoft now!

Great article, should be titled, MS hacks competitor devices, installs malware, corrupts phone os', installs tracking software, and connects device to outside server without prior notice.
From my data, Microsoft still has LESS THAN 1% of the market. Maybe if they keep wasting their money on marketing they will confuse enough people to get them to buy.

Marketing received $100 million dollars for promote phone.
Development got less than $100 thousand dollars to create phone.

Seems they are more into promotions, flare, marketing, and catchy names phrases. Since there are only a handful of devs, less than ten people who made this thing, while there are THOUSANDS of marketers promoting this thing, you would have to think

they care less about features, and more about confusing the buyer with marketing tactics.

BOYCOTT MICROSOFT

When those ten devs got paid less than minimum wage to develop the phone, no wonder the phone operates like it was made by someone who got paid $ten bucks an hour, CAUSE IT WAS! Why would the devs care, they have no stake in weather it succeeds or fails. They are only concerned about food, gasoline, and paying for electric.
