Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

Do you see the trend? Everything points to this being an isolated Thom problem. Yet you penned an entire hit piece article trashing Windows Phone, never issued a retraction or any sort of correction, and continue to pedal the same inaccuracies as if they were some widespread issue.


And yet, there were several people saying they had issues as well, as I demonstrated. Even if it's only one out of ten, that's still 10% - which is a lot.

But hey, go ahead believing WP7.5 is the perfect end-all-be-all, pinning every piece of criticism on anti-Microsoft sentiments or me being delibiritely trying to hurt your pet platform (even though I've probably been more positive about WP7 than any other mobile platform).

I'm already used to all the whining from Apple fanboys; a few Microsoft ones I can handle just fine.

You have three. Make that two, if you read the comment above. The person you quoted states his was an isolated incident and had more to do with Sprint coverage.

Can you find any kind of evidence to suggest this is even a remotely wide spread issue? Any large groups of posts in support forums? Any articles detailing these issues? In fact, if I search google, OSNews is one of the only websites which even shows relevant results. You're the only one writing about this.

Your 10% figure is outlandish, ridiculous, and misleading. Find me any kind of evidence, please, find me anything that proves you're correct.

I don't deny you've written positively about WP7, but it doesn't magically make you right in this case. In fact, you're blatantly wrong, and I think you're the only one who still believes you're right.

There's no "probably" about it. In fact your consistently positive experiences with the platform is what got me interested in it, long after I had written it off as WinCE/WinMo/PocketPC redux.

I know I sound like a broken record by now, but can't we all just stop arguing and fighting over what is the best platform overall, and realize that we should be focusing on what is the best platform for each of our individual needs?

All of this "my OS is better than your OS" is so boring and repetitive. Folks, use the tool that gets the job done best and be proud of yourself for making an informed choice!
