Windows So, Mobile World Congress is going on over in the beautiful city of Barcelona, and there, Steve Ballmer held a little speech about Windows Phone 7's past, present, and future. Especially the future interests us, as a lot's been planned for this year: copy/paste, hardware-accelerated mobile Internet Explorer 9, and, yes, multitasking!

I don't get this "rooting for company X to die" nonsense.


It's basic human psychology: if you have a preference for certain parties you know any additional players in the same field are competitors and will weaken the stand of your preferred ones. This reflects as a direct attack against you as well in your subconscious, ie. "your preference is not good enough." Some people are more susceptible to act out on such subconscious threats without even realizing where their aggression comes from, especially in males as it is in their instincts to protect their territory.
