    Just got a work email and I realized that I have taken the day off. It's Friday today, I thought it's Saturday...

    At the moment it's really a thing in this forum to post links to bad and biased reviews of Apple products, or to comparisons between Apple and Microsoft products.

    Now here is my revolutionary question: If every tech site on this planet thinks that Apple products are great, couldn't it just be true? ;-)

    My wife and I got these 25$ Visa cards for the MS Store when we bought our WP7's in 2011. (We also got them on the Saturday after Turkey Day, when they were a penny online from AT&T. I Iike to think I got paid to go to WP.) The WPC App was the first purchase I made, and the first app I downloaded to my Samsung Focus S. I use it a lot. Get the full app- I am with Wandering Traveler on this. It is worth it.

    Still hoping for better forum support.....
    I wished the forums were better on the WPCentral app, but hey, it works. :)

    I was using the free version, until recently. I paid the $1.00 for the app and it's pretty damn good, i'm wondering why the live tile doesn't update though...

    I must admit, I got the app for free in some kind of promotion...

    One important factor is certainly being nicer than I am.

    Thing is tech sites and reviewers have gotten lazy. Apple is easy to sell so that's what they sell. Apple is apparently 'easy' to use and they think that's the 'most' important thing rather than what the device is used for. They can't seem to comprehend that a tablet can be anything other than a consumer device for instance.

    Morning folks...it is a dreary Autumn Day in my neck of the world...rainy, windy and cold. Or as some may say, that's typical English weather. Either way not a sexy way to start the weekend...

    Snowmutt, good to see you. I needed a beer from you a few weeks back because i had to share an HIV+ diagnosis with a patient. Tough, tough stuff...i try to keep it light when I'm here on the forum, but that's one of the things no one likes to do in the medial field - be the bearer of life altering news...

    Between Samsung and HTC, I am curious if anything new from them comes out prior to 8.1 early next year. Nokia really only has kicked out 3 new devices, and that is if the 5" L9XX is real as it has not been officially announced. I can see a couple new HTCs and 1 new Samsung with 8.1, but I do not think we see any new WP's from them over the holidays.

    However, I am not worried about the Lumia line being the only hardware. So long as MS gives incentive to keep Nokia engeineers and designers onboard then the aggresive improvements with the WP devices we have seen will continue. That, however, is not a given and I hope MS gives 10% raises to everyone involved with the Lumia line. We need them so bad.....
    As cool as Android is, I'm glad MSFT went the Apple route and be restrictive in going to WP. Now, OEMs have to be smarter in how they sell WP. Its not like Android where you're selling both a skin and how it plays with your hardware. Nokia has shown that if you can tweak small parts of the OS, get apps to the ecosystem and focus on key selling points - camera tech, navigation & design - you can make money and more importantly, build a brand.

    Samsung knows their strength - mass production. I have no problem with them recycling their Android flagship for WP and keeping their experience vanilla. If i wasn't so hung up on the Pureview camera, I'd be an Ativ S owner today. If they can port a few of their Android features - the useful stuff, not the gimmicks - they'll be ok.

    HTC is where the trouble is at. They've been the most recognizable Windows brand since forever. They have got to pick a strength besides design and sell that. I still say audio is their best bet. With Sony staying with Android, only Nokia can challenge HTC in audio department. Even if Nokia stayed separate from MSFT, i don't think they had enough resources to make audio a key selling point.

    Love the built in amp in my 8X. Wish i had a true equalizer to take advantage. Would love to see audio apps too and a few audio accessories. Yes, they dropped Beats but i think hardware wise, HTC has something to work with for audio. If they can make cameras like they did with the Radar as the standard for all WP8 devices, and push audio and design, people will buy it...especially those who don't like lumia.

    I bought the app many moons ago. Love the support by Jay. It is a top 10 starter app for WP.

    Enjoying life with my T100. I find myself using it in dock mode and as a tablet equally. Good to see that my screen protector got shipped out so I should get that next week. Still getting used to Windows 8, but so far I have no complaints about making the jump. Cannot wait to get my new monitor so I can start to pull files from the desktop and working on transitioning that machine to 8.1 as well...
