PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "High Tech Computer (HTC) has grown up with Microsoft, from the old HTC-built iPAQ's running on Microsoft's Pocket PC operating system, to the Orange SPV - Microsoft's first Windows smartphone. The Taiwanese company has always been a loyal aid to the software giant, but lately that close relationship has started to feel a little dated. HTC's investment in Android and its Sense user interface has taken precedent over its initial work with Windows Mobile, and the company's Windows Phone flagships have been impressive, but overshadowed by Nokia's colorful Lumia range and partnership with Microsoft. That all appears to be changing though." HTC announced some good-looking Windows Phone 8 phones (ugh) today, but from my personal experience of owning several devices from both brands for over a decade, Nokia has the edge on quality. Good to see a serious commitment to WP8 though - we wouldn't want the Android dominance to continue.

Cloud services are not open in any way, except 'open for business'. They're all about lock-in. They take your data, so that you must use their services. This is of course Google's business model as well, and Amazon's, and Apple's. Stop pretending that Microsoft is somehow better for doing exactly like everyone else (but with no alternative).

Funny, I can export data from my cloud service just fine. Only in your invented reality is anything that you say true.

Right. Only in my invented reality is it true that Microsoft isn't better for doing exactly like everyone else.
