    Windows Phone 7 users can breathe a sigh of relief - they'll still be cared for by their brands and Microsoft for the foreseeable future.
    This is very cool.

    There was a time when Sony Playstation dominated the gaming console scene with Nintendo making up the rest of the market. Microsoft released the Xbox and everyone was saying it was a waste of time, Microsoft would get nowhere because it didn't have enough games and wouldn't be able to compete with Sony. How times have changed, the Xbox 360 has been selling the most consoles per month for 20 months straight and has 48% of the market share.

    Obviously it took time but eventually they took over. I'm not saying Windows Phone will take over but even capturing 15% of the market share will make it successful and position it as the 3rd major player. Then again anything can happen, no body thought Android could compete with iPhone either.

    Are you kidding me? When you can edit a word doc on the fly on your phone, then pull it up on your slate or convertible tablet and refine it in a cab, then get to the office and be ready for a presentation?...

    Please, Windows 8 is going to change everything, most just have no clue yet.
