    I hope Microsoft is getting the message by listening to your comments on this podcast. Maybe put a bug in Aicha Evans' ear? Make your whole phone as good as the camera is on the Nokia 1020, and people will more than notice, they will sing praises about Microsoft phones. At least the hardware side, anyway. Of course, they also need to make sure no one is giving anything up in terms of usability by choosing an MS phone over an Android phone (or iOS phone, I think there is potentially more chance of some people moving away from Apple - if and only if they are certian they will get a better experience by buying something besides an iPhone).

    I'm hoping one of the main reasons MS bought Nokia's mobile division is because they really want to have more say over the hardware, and intend to turn their smart phones into the innovations they should be - lead instead of follow . I guess will find out in the next year or so - but it needs to happen asap.

    The color gold has a bad reputation that makes people laugh at it, and this is why:

    big problem is shipping Windows 8.1. I know I'm not alone in saying Windows 8 is just entirely unusable. I can't stand it. I simply won't use anything that has it. Furthermore i think enough people feel this way that another OS is going to become mainstream out of a refusal to use Windows 8. If someone could make a Linux based distro with solid driver support there'd be no reason to ever use Windows again. Once people start using it developers will have no choice but to start supporting it.

    Hrel: "another OS is going to become mainstream out of a refusal to use Windows 8"
    I declare your comment joke of the year :-D

    Seriously, if that did not happen with Vista, at all, it will not happen with Windows 8. I find W8.1 a very good and usable OS, even in a laptop without touchsecreen. You can like it more or like it less, but if you really think it is "unusable" and you "hate" it, maybe the problem is not Windows...
