Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y And so this situation is starting to get ridiculous - and consumers are, as usual, caught in the middle of it all. Google has just blocked Windows Phone devices from accessing Google Maps on their phones. In addition, it also seems Windows Phone users are now restricted to the basic HTML version of the mobile GMail website. While understandable from a defensive perspective - Microsoft's extortion scheme targeting Android device makers and all that - it's still a massive dick move that only hurts consumers. Update: the media attention has worked - Google is backpedalling, and will remove the redirect. "We periodically test Google Maps compatibility with mobile browsers to make sure we deliver the best experience for those users. In our last test, IE mobile still did not offer a good maps experience with no ability to pan or zoom and perform basic map functionality. As a result, we chose to continue to redirect IE mobile users to Google.com where they could at least make local searches. The Firefox mobile browser did offer a somewhat better user experience and that’s why there is no redirect for those users. Recent improvements to IE mobile and Google Maps now deliver a better experience and we are currently working to remove the redirect. We will continue to test Google Maps compatibility with other mobile browsers to ensure the best possible experience for users."

You ... oh damn it. I have seldom seen so much stupidity!

I have seldom seen such asses.

"A movement can exist without a god but never without a devil" (not satan)

The context is _obviously_ generic.

Fair enough--in that case I was clearly mixing up the nonsense words on that page with the nonsense words you were spouting (ie. "GatesSatan"). Sorry, I guess I'm just no good at separating nonsense from nonsense. It's all the same. But you are right, I did a Ctrl+F search on that page for the word "Satan" and it did not show up. The confusion should be obvious though. Just further proof that you need to improve your skills of actually getting your point across, and perhaps quit trolling if that is your purpose here.

It's a world famous quote of this book you chopstick:

Can you speak one sentence without an insult flying full speed out of your mouth? And once again, I have never read, let alone heard of that book--and I really don't care about it either.
