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.

The joke used to be that Microsoft only did hardware well. Mice, keyboards.

I think I'm one of the few that hates MSFT mice and keyboards.

Then again I do most of my work nowadays from a Surface 2 with a type cover (remote into a VM for running VS on a large monitor on my desk) so my "traditional" PC experience isn't what it used to be.

A lot of Microsoft mice and keyboards were made by Logitech back in the past, I have no idea if it is true now.

However my keyboard has had quite a few glasses of Vino Tinto spilled over it and it still works quite well.

I always chalk this up to drivers. Most problems people seem to have with mice are driver related. Since Microsoft makes the OS, they should logically have the least problem with drivers.
