  1. re Terry’s commitment to Win Mob
    Even if Microsoft IS committed, its the market that will ultimately dictate it’s success. Sorry, too harsh? But isn’t it reality? Hasn’t the last 9yrs spoken volumes? Don’t get me wrong, I PREFER my Lumia (when it’s working) but reality is a brutally harsh mistress.

    Colin, how do you feel about Intel announcing killing the atom mobile chip recently? Looks like no possibility about the atom Surface phone. (https://www.thurrott.com/hardware/66865/intels-atom-cancellation-big-ramifications-surface-phone)

    I do like the youtube thing, but the popping\gaps are a bit too hard to listen smoothly. I switched back to the website replay.

    re Win32 on the phone\mobile
    If you buy into Microsoft’s past mobile philosophies, (beliefs on threading, how they treat battery, notifications, display, etc), do we REALLY think Win32 apps are going to SUDDENLY behave like good mobile citizens? I think they’ll be worse than android apps, DOH!

    re Centennial
    Sounds good, but shouldn’t people really be looking at Surface instead?

    re Microsoft’s turn?
    hhhhmmmm I would have agreed with you 4/5yrs ago. Now?

    re Cortana
    NICE! :> HAHA And you can get poutine and beaver tails. :>

    re Atley Hunter MVP
