R.I.P. Windows Phone: Death without Life

I do my very best to never report on earnings or stock market valuations. After all, who really cares that Apple “only” sold 75 million iPhones last quarter?

Microsoft Promises New Plan to Deliver Firmware to Insiders

Today, Jason from Microsoft posted in the Answers forum about firmware updates to Insiders, saying that Microsoft is working on a way to make them available. As it stands, Insiders don’t have access to firmware updates, as firmware updates are on the production servers, not on the Insider servers.

Today, Microsoft Garage released yet another app for iOS that isn’t available on Windows Phone. This one is called News Pro. The idea is to deliver, you guessed it, news.
