    Seriously, everyone needs to write a letter to their local Microsoft representative and demand some access to all he cool APIs blocked for 3rd party apps. That or whine about it on Twitter."

    They need something to set them apart from Apple. If they just follow Apple's playbook verbatim, they're destined to fail, Apple has waaaaaay too large of a lead.

    So, let us wait for these to come soon.
