Windows It had to be said. It had to be said because no one else in the technology industry had the guts to say it. "I think it's time to stop giving Windows Phone a pass." Thanks, Joshua Topolsky. He's right. A few weeks ago I went back to my HTC HD7 for a few days while I was getting acquainted with the Android ROM scene, and to my utter surprise, most of my problems with Windows Phone 7 from when the platform was just released were still there.

Topolsky is a fanboi

He squeals with glee every time a new Apple product emerges. If you ever read his reviews on Engadget you would see that any "criticisms" are never reflected in the final score. Any Android devices would have points deducted but not his precious Apple toys. I watched him gush on some US chatshow over the animation of the iBooks app on the original iPad. It was like a sales pitch.

Apple's crap has been consistently lacking in features up until iPhone4 and iOS5 when it actually caught up. That was 3 iPhone models and 4 iterations of iOS that got a "pass". Reviewers are so distracted by the shiny, it's almost like they forget they're supposed to be somewhat impartial.

There is no way Metro is a "me too" UI.

You do know that Topolsky rated the Verizon Galaxy Nexus higher than the iPhone 4S, right? In his review he gave the Verizon GNex a 8.7 and the iPhone 4S a 8.6. With the amount of problems the GNex had in its infancy I would hardly call him an Apple fanboy.
