Windows The general gist? A minor update somewhere this year, but the real update won't come until 2014. In the meantime, we'll have to... "Resuming..." ...settle for CardDAV/CalDAV support, some additional HTML5 support, and fixes for Xbox Music metadata. We were promised regular updates and an early access program for enthusiasts - but Microsoft failed to deliver, once more. For all intents and purposes, thanks... "Resuming..." ...to the switch to the Windows NT kernel, the Windows Phone we're using today has very little additional functionality to offer over what we were using on WP7 release day. I've been a Windows Phone user since WP7 release day, but Microsoft has lost me.

Surface is such a great hit that they're cutting the price by $150.

That's already after their education fire sale

Surface RT is headed for the Microsoft graveyard next to Kin and Zune. But go ahead and keep cheerleading this POS until they Silverlight it.

You mean they're clearing inventory for the next Surface, you do know that new models come out, right?

At Amazon Surface RT is #64 in tablets which puts it behind the Blackberry Playbook, the original iPad and more expensive Android tablets.

Did you defend the Kin as well? What about the Zune? The original Xbox One? Just wondering how far you take shilling.
