    I think it is a great idea on W8, fixing minor annoying bugs (WP7's disappearing keyboard, for example) Every Tuesday. They already have a push system for updates, they just need to use it more often. They could even just do patches via push updates and make WP8 Blue a store app. That way consumers could tell the difference between patches and fixes and major OS revisions.

    I can think of alot of things patch Tuesday could fix...
    - Broken live tiles
    - IE exploits like the one discovered at WP launch
    - FM radio (All they have to do is enable it, really...)
    - SIM error glitch
    - Other storage
    - CALdav
    - CARDav
    - Bad data usage issues (Live tiles taking lots of data)
    - UMHG INSTAGRAAAAAM (jk)

    I say Patch Tuesday for Windows 8 and Patch Thursday for Windows Phone 8 (so they don't kill themselves in 1 day)! That is something that would be new for the mobile world!

    Exactly. MS has to stop falling behind and INNOVATE. If this can be done for Win8, it can be done for WP8..

    First that isn't fixes most of these are features.
    Second it takes time to test all the **** before releasing, it's not that easy as it looks like.
    Third try to start your own company and do new stuff every week, im pretty sure it would either suck or would make you bancrupt.

    It's a lot harder to push out updates every week for phones because they operate on different carriers. It has a long approval and editing process which probably takes longer than a week itself. It's easier for W8 because its devices aren't under carrier contract and therefore the updates don't need to be approved and released by them. All updates go through Microsoft in that case, which makes them more frequent.

    Apple, Google, Samsung and everyone else have to get carrier approval, how would a tiny fish in the mobile world like Microsoft manage something even Apple can't manage?

    Carriers have no business messing with os firmware imo, all they do is load junk people don't want and delay things further.

    The carriers (ALL the US carriers) would just be like "GL then" and blocked every WP device from being able to access their network.

    LOL! You must be new here. MS has been making claims about being able to control updates since at least 2009, but it hasn't happened yet.

    not happening as long as carriers are involved. Problem is, if they keep sending out updates, it may mess up the phone on the network causing serious signal issues.

    Patch Tuesday isn't every Tuesday, even for desktop Windows. It's once a month, on the second Tuesday of the month.

    Patch Tuesday is actually 2nd Tuesday of every month. Not every Tuesday in a year.

    How utterly believable. I'd really like to see the carrier "testing" that occurs for an update like Portico.
    "Oh no, Microsoft added persistent WiFi, people aren't unexpectedly going over their data caps when the screen is off now! Damn!"

    Why does Microsoft need to go through carriers to push out say, playlist management, global access to already-present podcast infrastructure, or a fix for the OS not properly clearing out storage? The carriers don't need to test that stuff, it has nothing to do with them. If signal issues are so easily caused, why isn't the iPhone a complete mess? And if OTA must to be locked down, why don't they use the Store? Nokia tweaks their low-level customisations constantly through it, why didn't Microsoft think of making apps like Music+Videos function similarly?
