Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

One of my friends is a Boeing 737 Captain. I once asked him whether he preferred old style analogue gauges or modern computerised sytems. He told me that both systems were completely different but neither system was easier or more difficult to use overall.
