    Hate to break it to you, but I'm not like an apple fanboy that will chastise you and say you're holding it wrong just because apple is simply the best and that's that.

    I will though, chastise if one isn't trying to make an effort to have Windows 8 work effectively for them. Like for example, I bet that some are saying no to it because it's difficult to navigate around for the Desktop as there aren't any Desktop items by default pinned to the Start Screen. I need to look this up, but even the Developer Preview had Desktop items pinned to its Start Screen. That is one thing Start should have had by default, all the commonly used user Library locations. Put some familiarity back in a new UI, which does NOT mean a start menu.

    Putting an apple in chocolate is simply too weird for me, I prefer caramel. Strawberry is first in my book.

    You melt a big toblerone chocolate bar and you mix with 35% cream and then you cut the apple in piece and you deep them in the melting chocolate........ ( another $ 300 dentist fees )

    be honest you can't do that with a surface, only with an apple, I told you they are the best .....

    Making headline news now...
    Early adopters of Windows Phone 8 hardware are complaining that it reboots at random, up to several times a day, and that they're not being offered any prospect of a quick fix.
    The complaints relate specifically to the HTC 8X and, to a lesser extent, Nokia's Lumia 920, with Windows Phone 8 locking up or randomly rebooting on both devices for no discernible reason. Forum users on Microsoft.com and WPCentral have been gathering examples in an attempt to narrow down the problem, but with limited success.

    I already said they will have to fix a lot of things related to crashing and graphic problems before this will be a stable new operating system that people will trust them
