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.

The problem with cloud services, is that the moment you place any of your data there, it stops being your data.

It can be shutdown, erased, whatever at any given moment, regardless of what the terms of service might say.

Depending on your country you might even not have any legal protection against it.

Just look at the Megaupload fiasco for a prime example. Yes, some users probably were storing illegal/infringing files on the megaupload servers. However, many others were using it for legit puporses, some even business-critical. And now, no one has access to any of the files on the megaupload servers. No warning. No way to access their files. No legal recourse. Files are just ... gone.
