    However, my point was specific to Canada. Since you know so much, please explain why Canada - a country that shares much of it's cultural norms with the US - doesn't get voice features alongside the US?
    Just like with other market it comes down to localization. There's certainly less to do between the US and Canada, but there will still be some work to do. It seems clear they're putting all assets behind getting the base functionality working in what they view as their most important market first, then will reallocate those resources to localization.

    My friends and family use Google now very often.
    and I was also planning to show mine but MS just ruin it and worse made them available for US only.

    You and your friends circle doesn't use , so you have no problem with that but I have
    But why you purchased wp so? I mean, there were reasons to do that. Just try to remember what made you buy wp, remember the day you purchased the Phone, remember the unboxing.. And enjoy the experience of following up how the OS is getting better and better each year. On android you'll be just like any other around, with phones that getting Old every six month. I feel my lumia 920 as Modern and up to date as the day i purchased it, and with 8.1 will be even more

    Exactly. As I was saying before they can't just release to only part of Canada without upsetting other parts of Canada.

    We're essentially getting an early version to work the kinks out...but people would rather assume that MS is just a bunch of evil jerks who somehow don't like money and just want to flip everyone else that's not American off.

    The paranoia or odd pathos required to believe that is not normal. :(

    Pardon me, but when someone disingenuously makes assertions about my comments, as well as makes the implication that I'm "unintelligent" (see Shane's rhetoric) I will certainly call them out for it. I would also like to point out that my comments on his attitude are justified and have nothing to do with his person. He is - literally - being disingenuous and condescending to people here.

    No I'm just being honest, but feel free to keep the insults flowing even when staff tells you to stop.

    I'm willing to accept the consequences of being honest. :)

    You keep trying to change tactics though if you feel better acting this way where everyone can see it. I won't stop you. :)

    You do also realize I pointed at my resume for a reason right? There are certain things I legally am not allowed to comment on. That wasn't me being condescending. That was me trying to drop you a huge hint as to how I know what I know.

    Ok they can ban me if they want, but you are now obviously trolling.

    Especially when I'm openly telling you that I have spent most of the last 6 years working on Xbox, Zune, and Windows Phone projects on the Microsoft main campus...

    I mean how much more obvious do I have to make it?


    BTW for anyone reading. His claim that I inferred he is unintelligent is a load of horse puckey. Here's where and how I used the word unintelligent:

    "Only someone unintelligent withholds something easily given that will make them more money. To not provide what customers want out of sheer spite would be stupidity at its highest level...and no one at MS is that stupid."

    I was saying that a company that behaves poorly towards potential customers purely out of spite would be stupid and unintelligent...but evidently everything is about him. ;)
