PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "BlackBerry offered few signs of a long-promised turnaround on Friday, with an unexpected quarterly operating loss, a dearth of details on sales of its make-or-break new line of devices and no return to profit expected in the current quarter. BlackBerry shares tumbled about 28 percent in both U.S. and Toronto trading." 'Unexpected'? Really?

And this is why most wannabe contenders must gain trust from developers to be worth their time outside iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

A similar example happend when Nokia announced around November that Qt only APIs would be the way forward for Symbian and Maemo, for fourth months later to kill everyone's trust with the move to Windows Phone 7.

Episodes like this won't won't make many friends.

No one trusts Windows Phone, it already failed. My company does development for quite large and known companies. When WP8 came out, they were all crazy for supporting it. A few months later it's like it doesn't even exist. Microsoft will really have to do a LOT of work to reverse this situation.

Games studios do, that is the only type of apps I care about.

However you are right, I am currently pissed off with the MSVC++ 2012 out-of-band updates vs MSVC++ 2013 story, although my employer still uses MSVC++ 2010.
