This is a great article that details why Microsoft decided to Reboot the Windows Phone OS with an architecture that closely resembles the Windows RT Platform.
What isn't said is that it would be fairly easy to recompile Windows Phone 8 Apps on RT tablets based on the Architecture changes. The Security models could be different but in reality, what better way to boost the RT platform than to have it launch with 100K apps? Microsoft isn't pushing cloud compilation for no reason. ;)

That and people love to gloss over things in blog/news articles - a title like that would get more attention. I feel like there are a lot of people who feel most of WP8 is out there already and that's starting some negative press and consumer opinion.

Hey guys. I got a question. Is tellme a developer thing or a comsumer feature. I don't know. If it 's a comsumer feature I think they"ll be much more for tellme. But I hope they have cloud backup and cloud storage. Meaning you can store everything on your phone to the cloud and just use the other space you got

Tech bloggers are the worst "journalists" in the world. They consistently write bogus articles based on "sources familiar with the matter", strive for views through click-bait headlines and strongly opinionated drivel, and worst of all - they next to never correct their mistakes. They will leave error-ridden articles that appear on the first results page of Google unedited, leading readers astray. It's disgusting.
WP Central doesn't do this, because I feel that a more focused publication such as the ones at Mobile Nations know what they are talking about (most of the time) and is far more community-based. It's a big problem with publications who have one or two "technology correspondents" or larger sites run by people with not nearly enough knowledge to match their enormous egos. Hats off to guys like John Siracusa who follow up on their mistakes every podcast.

It depends what people are those tech bloggers. If there are some non-serious people who just copy-paste the whole thing and think that is an article, then stay away from that site. IMO this site has some good folks around who write quality articles and keep us updated with the scene. That's why I hate every other site. Tey have the professional relationship (if I may call that so) with public.
Some writing mistakes are acceptable, not so disturbing. But an article full of mistakes, half english half blargh is not really for the internet...

That's true, but I don't see any profit in that, because take a look around in general, who uses voice commands on phones? It gets usable in the car, but in general not really. And that details you specified also don't seem so important after all, although there are endless possibilities for that part of the system.

Showoff feature by Crapple. Nothing special, neither I haven't seen anybody here in Slovenia that he would talk to the phone what weather is it gonna be, or where is the restaurant, lol :D.
Better if they make something on their own and pwn the competition with that, not with copying :)

I am pumped to see what WP 8 brings. I have pretty much decided much to save my cash and get a new WP8 when they come out, most likely Samsung or Nokia. I see this as a near necessity once I upgrade my PC's insides and install Windows 8.
Plus, if I don't get a new WP, I may die. A slow, horrible death involving main organs failing and drool. No man or woman should go like that......

I'm most interest in seeing what happens with the new Xbox Live Hub. There hasn't been any major announcements, but I feel like there's room for improvement there. Multitasking and notifications are another big one. Being able to see what running with the option of closing it with an upward swipe is something I'd love to see, as well as an option for screenshots, within our current multitasking screen. There was a concept up on the site a while back that showed something like I'm talking about.
