Windows Since the US is stuffing turkeys down their faces today, we're a little low on news. As such, let's talk about this sort-of jailbreak for Windows Phone 7 devices. Like iOS, you can't sideload applications by default, and as such, we need to resort to hacks to unshackle Windows Phone 7 phones from the Marketplace. This has been made incredibly easy. Also, just to annoy those that don't like unicorns: PINK FLUFFY UNICORNS DANCING ON RAINBOWS.

Good luck trying to copy and paste. Microsoft thinks you are a pirate, so no copy and paste allowed. In Microsoft land, you are guilty until proven otherwise. And you are not allowed to make your own choices.

:) Not worried about it, yet. Heck, all I will use it for is GPS and Geo-caching tools, Bible tools, Netflix and games, most likely. Also some note taking and stuff like that... Altho' I might find other uses for it. I've never had a "smart phone," that's more my wife's thing.

I do like her iPhone and it comes in handy frequently. Hoping this will too. But seriously, if it doesn't work for me over a couple weeks it will be returned.

Copy and paste is coming early next year.
