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.

Jolla doesn't have to sell a shitload of devices in order to be a success. BlackBerry and Microsoft do.


Nor does Canonical or Mozilla.

In the end, they're all happy to just sell devices however large/small the market may be.

It's not about market share to them. It's about doing cool things with technology that show their own corporate visions for what the technology world should be like.

And Firefox OS is really pretty cool...
