Microsoft Microsoft's response to Apple's win is probably the most cringeworthy of all. Blatantly admitting Windows Phone can't make a dent in the market on merit, but instead requires the court room to do so, Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, said: "Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now." Nauseating.

Dude have you ever seen the near riots that happen when a new Air Jordan is released? Apple is about branding, no different than Gucci and Prada. Do Gucci and Prada make nice products? Well I'm sure they do, but its not the fact that its a nice product that sells it...that's just a bonus.

No its the status thing that does a lot of the selling for Apple, just as Air Jordans I'm sure are nice but people don't have flash mobs for nice shoes, they do it for status items. Isn't it funny how the ONLY products you see people literally camping out ahead of time to get are Air Jordans and Apple products? Having last year's Apple is simply uncool daddy-o, Like wearing last year's fashions.

Not to say there is anything wrong with being into fashion, if that makes you happy? I wish you nothing but good fortune. Just be willing to admit its a fashion choice, that's all.
