Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

Both topics have been extensively covered by the mainstream tech press already.


A single article with a passing mention of return rates with no sources, detail, or substantiation is ”extensively covered?” Talk about weasel words. Do you believe everything you read on the internet?

I have only given you an example. I did not list all articles. Searching the web for "Surface RT return rates" will give you dozens of results including ones from reputable online publications.

And if you had bothered to read the article, you would have noticed that the high return rates were quoted from IHS iSupply.
