Windows So, after much, much speculation and many, many rumours, Microsoft finally took the wraps off Windows Phone 7 Series, its newest mobile operating system. Hold on to your hats, because uncharacteristically for the Redmond giant, they've rebuilt everything from the ground up - this system has little to no connection to the Windows Mobile of yore. I don't say this lightly - but dear lord, Windows Phone 7 Series is full of win. Update: Hands-on video from Engadget inside. Update II: There is no sync application. It's all done over-the-air, to the internet. Only videos and music are synced via the Zune software. Update III: Since I didn't mention it clearly, here it goes: Windows Phone 7 Series is a clean break. There is no backwards compatibility at all. Update IV: Channel9 has a 22-minute in-depth demonstration of Windows Phone 7 Series.

Why? I'm no SN junkie (I barely check my facebook account, once a month maybe) but honestly I feel alone in this. My gf, brothers, friends and my whole workplace live on facebook and twitter, and I don't see that going away anytime soon. They don't even mail or phone people to ask for parties anymore, it's all facebooked.

It's the right move for a new OS. It may not be a new idea, but it's the right one.
