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.

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).

Apps tombstone on Windows Phone 8 only during low memory situations or crashes. If you consistently see "Resuming.." it means the app is loading state from disk instead of from memory. That overlay shows when the app takes more than X amount of time to resume.

So its likely that there's either an issue in how the developer handles tombstoning or the developer is leaking some memory somewhere causing the process manager to kill it.

Today morning i woke up and it won't sync with Google anymore, claiming certificate issues.
This phone OS is so buggy that by the time they get it right, I'm afraid no one will even remember it existed.

nope, windows phone 8 always reloads the apps from scratch for me, it doesn't allow them to stay on the background like android or modern ios.
Pretty annoying with apps such as gchat on 3G, has to load the contact list all the time. Happens with all applications, so at this point I think it's just the OS that doesn't support proper multitasking
