and what's the bet they pull the same "sorry it won't run on your hardware", BS they did with Windows Phone 7. If they pull that again My lovely Nokia will be covered in cow excrement and lobbed through their reception area. They need to keep the existing Phone users on board or their "unification" is for shit. Windows 9 looks like it may be a keel haul for consumers anyway with its "always online, do you rent this" check, they may as well sell it through Steam, they would probably get more purchases that way.

the WP8 platform worthwhile, the slow ineffectual lot at MS has been messing about for ages now and still can't open their own stupid winmail.dat files on a WP8, they know to as they hide it rather than fixing it. Sack the MS staff and keep the nokia ones, I still can't just press play on my BT stereo and have it work if the app is not pre-loaded. It used to work then they broke it in WP8.1 and despite feedback have not fixed it. What the fuck is wrong with them, have they never owned a phone before.

Exactly this, the old stuff keep's going, the new stuff is junk. Dynalink made an epicly bad adsl2 modem which our isps were giving out. Burnt out one every three months with basic use, hooked up through ups and line surge protectors running at about 10mbits. The things were just that poorly put together with bga chips, inadequate cooling and memory. Got through four a year under warranty.

In comparison I still have some old adsl gear that works, tops out at 8mb but at least it was designed not just badly copied by some clueless Chinese foundry somewhere for the lowest possible cost for the highest possible profit.

What little chance it had left it has now lost, tell us Steve, how much more boxy are you going to make it, how many more user hostile features are you going to add, what useful features can be stripped out and replaced by junk. By the time it launches it will be able to search for your keys in 30 different languages, tell you are about to have a heart attack, that you are due for a prostate check and that you have 50 new marketing emails from facebook. The one thing it won't be able to do is play games.

Go on fanboys, mod me down for being right, I own one and have had to return it once thanks to faulty hardware and wait months for them to fix 4.2 to deal with Bluetooth even remotely stably and for it to bring up the start screen icons in less than ten seconds. Before anyone starts spouting the fanboy line I should not have to root it, mod it or reflash it to make the damn thing work reasonably.

The disks are getting full; purge a file today.
