2013 was nothing less than a blockbuster success for Windows Phone, which went from industry also-ran to the undisputed third mobile ecosystem, and is poised to challenge iPhone for the number two spot. You didn't think it could get this good? That's OK, neither did I.

Windows Phone seemingly turns a corner with every new application, small operating system update, and new Nokia Lumia. It's turning so many corners it's running in circles.

I'm pretty sure we're looking at the same market share data in the article above, the only difference is that you're probably closing your eyes (and/or burying your head in the sand).

We've seen the same market share data before about Windows Phone, and Surface, and Windows RT for that matter (and the same ridiculous 'selling out' story)........and the inevitable bad news surfaces later. It's Paul fricking Thurrott for crying out loud.

Same difference.

I don't need credibility lent to me by some tangential prediction about another market, because the report speaks for itself.

OK, you don't need credibility, which is fine because you don't have any.

Of course the report speaks for itself, just as the Windows RT and Surface sales figures have and just as countless prior reports on the success of Windows Phone, or subsequent lack of it, have done.

See a pattern?

So, I was bold enough to make a prediction, was wrong...

...and you're making further very similar predictions. See a pattern?
