    Wait a minute, TECHSPOT said a few days ago that MS didn't care about their "bogus" apps in the Windows store. A claim that was never said by a MS official. What kind of "bogus" reporting in TECHSPOT doing? Between that and the constant pop-up adds on this site, I think I'll start getting my technology news elsewhere.

    I could be wrong but it sounds like you didn't read the article. I believe the article addresses your concern.

    I saw that article too. The problem is you apparently think things can't change. It is very likely that when various websites started carrying that story that someone at Microsoft said "Whoa, this reflects poorly on us. We should start fixing this now" and then they did.

    Why make a comment/threat to leave? People come and go here all the time and it is largely unnoticed. There is no bogus reporting going on, the news is what the news is, things don't stay still, companies can change their stance on things.
