Windows A few days I switched back to Windows Phone 7.5 as my main smartphone operating system. Why? Well, because I can. I like to change things up every now and then, and blessed as I am with an iPhone 3GS (currently pulling duty at my best friend as her portable gaming device), Galaxy SII with CM9, and an HTC HD7, I have the luxury of doing so. Now that I'm back in the neat, tidy, and straight-lined arms of Windows Phone 7 - three long-standing issues really break the illusion, which all come from one source: the networking stack.

"As a geek, you owe it to yourself to at least go to your nearest phone store and play around with Metro. "

To be honest, they'd be better off if they tried the Windows live 'Into' app on someones Windows Phone. It'll give them a more interactive demo of just how personal the phone becomes when you see it with your own life being displayed and updated on the screen. That there is something that is hard to describe to someone until they've tried it for themselfs and I think thats one of Microsoft's hardest things they have to sell.

The Windows Phones I've seen in store have been dull and lifeless with no personal information set up on it to show it 'alive'. Even when I did get to see one of the employee's phones, the information presented on it that he was so ecstatic about ment nothing to me, it wasn't MY life I was seeing, it was his.
