Windows The general gist? A minor update somewhere this year, but the real update won't come until 2014. In the meantime, we'll have to... "Resuming..." ...settle for CardDAV/CalDAV support, some additional HTML5 support, and fixes for Xbox Music metadata. We were promised regular updates and an early access program for enthusiasts - but Microsoft failed to deliver, once more. For all intents and purposes, thanks... "Resuming..." ...to the switch to the Windows NT kernel, the Windows Phone we're using today has very little additional functionality to offer over what we were using on WP7 release day. I've been a Windows Phone user since WP7 release day, but Microsoft has lost me.

Then he should be fired RIGHT NOW, as you'd have had a better ROI by hiring a monkey to throw poo at a stock page and buying what had the largest chunks stuck to it.

But don't give me that "mission of the CEO" bull because that is what it is, after all if that was ALL his job was he could just burn the company, sell off the assets, and give the shareholders the money.

No what we are seeing here is a CEO that lives in a bubble and refuses to even look at the data coming in, there is NOT ONE positive metric with metro, not a single positive metric with winPhone, if you look at the money he has blown trying to be Apple they have thrown a good 30 billion plus in the fire the past half a decade with ZERO ROI.

Zune,killing the very profitable playsforsure program (Frankly the ONLY real chance they had at taking on Apple in content and which used MSFT's strengths by having everything from that $20 MP3 player at the checkout to a $300 PMP all able to run PFS), Sidekick, Kin, Zune market, shoving the X360 out with a 3 billion dollar hardware flaw, killing the forwards momentum they had with win 7 by pushing a cellphone OS onto the desktop, the insane amounts he paid for Yahoo Search, its been nothing but waste under Ballmer so by your own criteria he should be fired.
