Windows

2013 was nothing less than a blockbuster success for Windows Phone, which went from industry also-ran to the undisputed third mobile ecosystem, and is poised to challenge iPhone for the number two spot. You didn't think it could get this good? That's OK, neither did I.

Windows Phone seemingly turns a corner with every new application, small operating system update, and new Nokia Lumia. It's turning so many corners it's running in circles.

So he is not allowed to be wrong ever, about anything?

Ridiculous.

Not allowed, who said that? But a bet is a bet.

It is just petty point-scoring bollox. I am pretty sure I say the expression "I bet you" about 50 times a day.

It doesn't lend much credibility to the arguments he's making now, does it?

There will always be a perfect storm in his world for Windows to saunter into............

I'm pretty sure we're looking at the same market share data in the article above, the only difference is that you're probably closing your eyes (and/or burying your head in the sand).

I don't need credibility lent to me by some tangential prediction about another market, because the report speaks for itself.

So, I was bold enough to make a prediction, was wrong, and owned up to it. A lot more than can be said for a lot here who in the rare event they actually stick their neck out and make a prediction, never own up when it doesn't materialize.

He is allowed to be wrong. But yacking that he was right all along and telling people all the time that they are dead wrong results in a backlash...
