    Go back 10 years ago and Nokia and RIM were giants in the field. Now they're both struggling. Can't take anything for granted.

    Anyone remember Windows Mobile? Man that was awful. I have a feeling that unless it's an iOS clone it's not going to be accepted.

    Wait, they dumped Meego, a fantastic Linux-derived OS and were working on...another Linux-based OS?? WTH is up with this company?? We know that almost nobody likes Windows Phone, so what are they gonna do now - double down? Sheesh.

    Cool story bro. I just wish I knew what bug time was.

    I use Windows Phone, and it's the best mobile OS, in my opinion. I also have an iPhone and an Android tablet, so you can't exactly call me a fanboy either.
