Microsoft Microsoft has just responded to Google's move regarding Exchange ActiveSync. Sadly, instead of addressing the very real problems consumers are about to face, Microsoft starts talking about switching to Outlook.com.

I personally know people who've made, and continue to make great money on the platform. Between Windows Phone and Windows 8, the revenue has given me more financial freedom than I've had in years.

Uh huh. ROTFL. At least we know who you are now and we've established your credibility rating - zero.

It is a bald faced lie that Windows Phone and Windows Store both have low download counts, and bring in a small amount of revenue.

Regardless of what you believe in your fantasy world, the Windows Phone market is miniscule next to that of Android and iOS. You don't know of anyone making 'great money' off it because it simply isn't viable.

Android's app market was a long, long way behind iOS's for many, many years (still is in some ways) before it got some critical mass to the point where it became viable for apps to be developed for it.

The brutal truth is that there is no room whatsoever for a third platform. Any developers that are ignoring hard economics on that are living in a sad, strange little world.
