    Many are outraged by Microsoft choosing to create Bing Rewards app and back end services for iOS and Android first. We shouldn't be surprised. Skype does the very same thing. We should actually expect thus behavior. Microsoft can do this kind of stuff to Windows users...just like most all other devs give Windows platform C-level support (Amazon, B&N, Comixology, VLC,etc). And its our fault. WHY? BECAUSE WE JUST ACCEPT IT, LIKE THE BUNCH OF PANSIES WE ARE. We happily gobble up the scraps that fall off the table like some hungry dog. iOS users would be incensed and take their anger to Twitter directly to the devs. But not us. We put our heads down like the bullied kid and cross our fingers for things to change. We deserve the treatment we get. Will things change? I seriously doubt it. Because deep down we feel we deserve this kind of support for choosing Windows. The devs know that and that's why Amazon gives us crummy Kindle and Audible apps, Comixology removes their WP7 app and doesn't bother to update their buggy Windows 8 app, B&N can't be bothered to make a WP8 app despite getting millions from Microsoft, and VLC has the "when we get aroundtoit" approach to Windows development although they got our kickstarter money. We are the Trekkies at the Comic Convention. We love our stuff, but others just look at us curiously or deride us while we just take it because we think we have something they just don't understand.
