Actually this is one you can squarely lay at Obama's feet. As this is the result of Executive Orders it is one of the things he can legally change without anyone else being able to stop him or even force him to wait. As he has been President for 6 years and this is something he could change in 6 seconds by simply repealing it, it is his fault at this point.
Exactly. Its not as if he is shy from pointing it out
I've got a pen, and I've got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward
it is fair to blame the others, but its just as fair to blame obama for NOT taking action
Having said that I agree with you. I am running a win 8 machine with a stardock start button replacement and it is pretty damn good.
By taking the apps out of it, it allows them more control on the functionality of the phone, even if the framework does not get any help from the carriers
