    It’s not fake news, it’s an analysis.

    I have to say, I love my Surface Pro 3, but I sincerely doubt I'll buy another Surface. I envisioned MS being a player in consumer when I bought it but I think that ship has left port. I purchased a lot of movies through MS so I could watch on my Surface when traveling. But I bet MS will kill off the movies and TV like they did Groove.

    An analysis that comes to a baseless conclusion, based on baseless claims, that Microsoft is going to terminate a product line isn't much of an analysis. I throw around the term "fake news" because it's fun to say now. But this is essentially garbage journalism.

    Your opinion which you are entitled to. You also don’t have to read it.
    MS has done nothing to prevent people from predicting these types of events. I think you’re placing the blame on the wrong people.

    Microsoft doesn't control the keyboard of Bogdad Popa. It's our prerogative as responsible consumers to acknowledge and reject bad journalism when we see it. This is bad journalism.

    Look, we’re all human and biased towards our own opinions. If you had agreed with the piece, you’d be praising them. Instead you responded emotionally and called out the author. Whatever, I could care less. I may even agree with you.
    Enjoy your day. I have work to do.

    Whoops, you're right! I forget how well you know me. Of course, I was being entirely subjective and i'm driven solely by emotion. How silly of me to assume that there's an objective basis for good journalism. My bad!

    Enjoy your day of hard work!

    Well what is there to talk about in the Windows consumer world? Certainly mobile is bye bye, I don't see anything on the consumer side that is positive.

    A company discontinuing their failing products is hardly news.

    Windows 10, Xbox, and Office, are all doing quite well as far as I can tell. No doubt that most people are familiar with these products.

    At the same time, have you ever heard of a lot of people using Groove? W10 mobile?


    You know what else is doing really well? iPhones and Android. The customers are already there, MS would be dumb to ignore that. THAT is what Belfiore's tweet above meant. Apple and Google are literally handing these customers to MS by letting them release their software.

    You can't possibly be surprised by Microsoft's recent decisions and announcements, they were all predictable and logical.


    As for W10 mobile specifically, it's really quite simple from my point of view.
    Why would MS make a whole new and separate OS for mobile, when they already have an extremely popular, extremely versatile OS?
    The only reason that smartphones ever existed, is because PCs couldn't fit in your pocket.

    You don't say. Thought most android phones high ends get at least two big updates or three during the first two or three years?

    4 weeks? That's nonsense, unless you are talking about budget phones that the minority of people own. But you must have missed my point. I asked, what MS consumer topic that is positive do people want to talk about?

    Let me try to help. Let's talk about Microsoft sync in Ford cars, oh wait they killed it. Let's talk about MS band, I owned both and loved them, oh wait they killed it. Let's talk about the Lumia phone line, owned an Icon loved the hell out of that phone, oh darn they killed that line. Let's talk about Windows 10 mobile, oh shuckydarn they killed it. Hmm, let's talk about Hololens, shoot, not consumer and no affordable device has been released. Okay trying to stay positive, let's talk about Groove music where I can purchase music and download the albums directly to my Lumia 635 I use for an MP3 player. Oh, shoot that's killed too. Okay people, help me out what Microsoft consumer product do you want to discuss in a positive manor? I would love to do it.
