Windows I wish more people who work or have worked for large technology companies were as open, honest, and excited as Steve Wozniak still gets over new technology and gadgets. He recently bought a Nokia Lumia 900 - and he's loving it. So much so, in fact, that he claims it's better than Android and iOS in many respects.

And yet, when you actually read Verge's review(and the extension on the Vergecast) he doesn't contradict Wozniak. Aesthetics are there, it's not moving fast enough.

The "appeal to authority" fallacy only works as a tactic when the "authority" being appealed to is respected as an "authority" worth appealing to by the person you are trying to convince.

I don't care about "The Verge" editors' opinion enough that I'd be swayed by them, so appealing to them as an authority is futile. ;)

Stupid "appeal to authority" talk is stupid.
Even owners of Windows phones agree that Windows Phone 1.0 is not competitive and is moving way too slow.
