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.

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.

I'm sure you're aware that Amazon is not at all indicative of the overall market, and I have in fact provided links which show otherwise. You're not just talking to yourself here, you are replying to my comments, so that comes with the implied requirement of actually reading.

I'm also sure you're aware where exactly the Surface was sold for much of its availability, mainly in Microsoft stores. It has only recently moved into brick and mortars, and even more recently to authorized resellers.

Please, just stop.
