Windows Microsoft's Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of Windows Phone, talks about the competition. "With iPhone, I sense that it's running out of steam. With iOS, [Apple] just added a fifth row of icons. Android is... kind of a mess. Look at Samsung - there's clearly mutiny going on. The only OEM making money off of Android is Samsung." There's truth to all these statements, which makes it all the more surprising that Microsoft appears to be unable to properly capitalise on them.

They just want to show us how poor the competition is doing and to think all is well @ Redmond.

I think Nokia spokespersons are still saying the company is doing pretty good...

Windows 8 is selling. Its already sold tens of millions of copies. Soon hundreds of millions. I can't believe we still entertain this ridiculous notion that Windows 8 is somehow a dud.
