Windows If you ever needed any proof it's anything but roses ans sunshine over at Microsoft's Windows Phone division, it's this. The next version of Windows Phone, WP8, will run on the NT kernel, which marks a pretty substantial departure from the current release. This raises the question: will current handsets be upgradeable to WP8? First, Microsoft indicated no. Then they said yes (interview retracted). And now, they're saying no again.

This discounts Apple's ability to introduce new products. At one time it was heavily dependent on iPods (although not 50% of revenue), then it was iPods and iPhones. Now it's iPods, iPhones and iPads. As long as they keep adding products to that list of "heavily dependent" on items, they will be okay.

That's the trap a lot of companies get in, when they have an established revenue stream from a set of products which they do not want to jeopardize.
