PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft has killed the Kin after only six weeks on the market. The first Windows Phone 7-ish phone apparently didn't sell, likely thanks to its too-high-for-the-demographic $30 data fee from Verizon.

You mean like this British guy:

Great Britain has lost an Empire and has not yet found a role.

Acheson, Dean


Brits sometimes incorrectly use the plural form in spoken word. Their own history and textbooks use the correct form.

Sorry bud, you are wrong. The British know their own 'living' language just as you know your dialect (for example, in my own dialect both British and American spelling is generally accepted - we prefer to communicate rather than distract or get distracted by 'grammar nazism'). Why start this off-topic discussion just because you don't like the content of the post?

Blow it out your kazoo, Thom. I get this enough from actual Brits without a chime-in from Europe. Real thing or no, even British linguists admit British English is used sloppily; the U.S. has hardly cornered that market among those that believe Noah Webster was and is a heretic.

Back on topic: Kin, meet Zune.
