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.

I saw the one that looks like a square and my 5 years old daughter thought it was a brownie! MS sucks big time in the cellphone market.

It is funny to see how our visionaries are all looking at Apple to copy their ideas so they can make a profit for their companies. Can they come out with something unique? Where is the creativity? I guess Steve Jobs has it all. Palm came with the webOS but the marketing was not the best but it is a hell of a OS.

Shameful to mention that but this is how I see it.

The marketing for the Pre freaked me (And a lot of other people) the hell out. There was -no- way that product was going to sell. It was simply too damn creepy to carry around in your pocket.
