Windows Paul Thurrot: "Tipped off by a reader, I checked my System log in Event Viewer today and what did I find but a stack of pending updates for all of the core apps in Windows 8. I'm not 100 percent sure this is what I think it is. But if we're right, it looks like 18 of the core apps in Windows 8 are about to get updated. Or, almost all of them." Foley confirms it. By far Windows 8's weakest link, so I'm hoping this is true. Especially the Mail application is dreadful.

It probably will improve enormously when they release 8.1 or something like that.
However, the poor integration with Google services and the vastly inferior mapping application means i'll soon switch back to Android..
About apps loading slow, don't you see a "Loading.." sign when you open apps? most of the apps show that. Depending on the app it might take 5 to 15 seconds.

You mean "Resuming...", and yes, it's silly. No idea why it sometimes takes longer, and no idea why it shows that anyway - it serves no purposes, and users don't understand it.

right, It's resuming..
Maybe it suspends applications or something like that.
The battery life on my winphone lasts much longer than other Android phones i owned (though it doesn't come close to the Z10).
