    Just read this and was shocked. Can't believe the bias against Microsoft.

    What a stupid, and useless article. It contains no facts, and it sounds like the ramblings of a senile old man (see his pic) who is out of touch with the situation

    I'd kind of agree and wish google would either put up or shut up and either let MS do their app or help them sort it out. Not the current circle jerk that's going on at the moment. Not really liking the tone of the article. I've seen some articles saying MS should just pay up to sort it out. Why is it MS needs to go above and beyond compared to the others. Utter bs. So close to just being done with google services.

    PCMag always has negative things to say against WP so I stopped clicking on their articles.

    I'd agree, but youtube is the one Google service that lacks a decent alternative.

    Yup that is indeed the problem. Even if there was a decent alternative, it would be another thing for the content creators I am subscribed to, to upload to another site. It's a shame really.

    Wasn't this the magazine which pitted the GS4, against the iPhone 5, against the BB Z10, against the Lumia 620?

    Says it all really.

    that can't be true. They couldn't have been so biased as to use the 620 in that group.

    Also,
    Microsoft has lost most of its talent by the stupid use of stacked ranking and incompetent management structures, so it's weak.
    Very professional author you have there, PCMag.

    He's not far off the mark on that point; MS' stack ranking system is infamous for creating a toxic work environment and causing loss of talent.

    Basically, every manager had to give 10% of their people a Below Expectations performance rating regardless of how well they may have actually been doing their jobs.

    That would be the stack ranking technique that Google is reportedly also using now?

    Dvorak simply trolls from a media position, with the only aim being to have people read his articles.

    Ignore the bait.

    What an insulting article on so many point. First off he tries to imply that Google has no press office, when the entire Silicon Valley tech media IS Google's press office. Second, he implies Microsoft has lost most of its engineering talent, which is patently untrue if you look at XBox One, Windows 8.1, Outlook.com, SkyDrive, Windows Phone, Azure, Surface. MSR.

    So the bottom line is this guy is just trying to mock Microsoft in favor of his paymaster Google.

    Okay, most of the reviews of WP devices are fair, usually 3 1/2 stars. The 1020 got a 4 star as did the 928 and 920. Windows 8 tablets hover around the same review levels. I think that is fair, considering where W8 and WP8 are in the world of mobile. So I am not sure it is PC Mag as much as certain writers.
