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.

Why?

Seriously why should Microsoft pursue that as a business strategy?

Because they believe it works. They had experience with waiting a long time for Windows to amount to something, but there wasn't two entrenched operating system ahead of them with a large amount of apps written for them. Ditto for Bing. They have a blind belief that it will all come good and they won't change.
