Windows A few days ago, Microsoft released the long-awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update for all those users who will be stuck on Windows Phone 7 forever because there's no upgrade path to Windows Phone 8 other than buying a new phone. Now that it's here, what, exactly, does WP7.8 to the table?

I can't believe how much control people give up to Google, Microsoft, and Apple in order to use their mobile operating systems.

Every year, mobile devices become closer and closer techically to laptop and desktop computers, and yet people pay for less and less control over their device.

I wonder if I will ever see a mobile phone that allows me to install a new operating system onto it without the use of a separate computer. ;)

EDIT: This post seemed to be relative to both the story and your comment when I wrote it, but now that I read it again it does seem a little tangential. I'm sorry. ;)

I own a Nokia N900. ^_^ It's my first smart phone. I bought it a few months ago. I didn't know it was capable of doing that. ;)

I wonder if any new phone will have that capability...
