    Is the increase in the number of PWA something positive? Obviously it will not save WP, but it might improve things for the few remaining users. :) It's at least possible to turn on service workers etc on WM in Edge (about:flags, scroll waayyyy down), but can we then get PWA functionality simply by going to the website, or would we still need to install these from the store? Any experts here?

    Today: Windows Phone OS ranked 2nd in PCMag.com Readers Choice Awards

    No surprise Windows Mobile beat out iPhones, but I can't believe Android beat Windows by 2 tenths of a point. I suspect the Russians are behind that.

    The characters in "Get Out" all carried 950's, and when one of them looked something up on a PC, they used Bing instead of Google. Wonder how much MS paid for that?

    I noticed that as well!
    I guess it's cheaper than paying licensing fees for iOS or Android. I do notice though that right now most shows or films feature the Microsoft Surface or SufaceBook (especially Netflix shows).

    If only Microsoft had been that aggressive with Windows 10 Mobile....

    Yeah I see Surface products quite a bit. In one of the new shows I watch, whenever a main or supporting character uses a computer, they are using Surface products or at least one character is using one.

    On Instagram, I also get a lot of Surface ads daily...

    If only MS had done this more with Windows Phone. Hopefully, if/when MS launches Andromeda, they will market it more than they have their (now) dead products in the past.

    Not so much positive phone news, but more "positive news for those who bought into the WP ecosystem": today I connected my 'free' Lumia 950XL Display Dock / Continuum dock aka HD500 to a Thunderbolt port on my X1 Yoga, and lo and behold, I have a perfect looking 1920x1200 native resolution on my Dell monitor. Finally I get to use that free dock! :)

    The only downside is that the X1Y requires 20V for charging, and the HD500 only offers 5V. So that means I can use the dock for about 7 hours until I need to charge the X1Y. Not too bad, I rarely work seven hours straight while at home. Glad I didn't sell it or throw it away. Thanks Microsoft!

    There is a show on Netflix called Greenhouse Academy. Season 2 started February this year. In it they have Surface devices but I also noticed that the only phones all the characters seem to use are Lumia 950s. That's interesting seeing as it is a 2018 series.
