Would you rather they release untested versions like ios or versions that are almost unnoticeable updates (jelly bean)? At least they seem to be on schedule and delivering as-promised, and not over-promising and/or under-delivering.

+1

microsoft seemed to develop app at a super slow pace. I wonder how much time the software developer actually does their work. They cant provide the basic feature and even their core apps like skype does not does video calling.
big failure

first they need to put daily uses features in GDR3, after that they can put more customizes and ui changes later in WP 8.1 aka-Blue. if u guys agree hit like.

These are just a few as stated int he article. I sure that there are quite a few more features coming. Also it is an interum update not 8.1 which is a major update.

Android users obviously think they have it all, but the truth is that they bleed their credit card numbers and other personal information all over the net...

WP8 is the slow but steady path for development, and there's no malware or trojan backdoor master keys to worry about.

Why don't you provide legitimate proof to the rest of us that there is clear evidence of malware or viri affecting Windows Phone 8 devices? Oh wait, you can't do it, because no such proof exists...

OWNED.

Since you can't prove that, I even won't start to prove opposite. ;)

P.S.
According to your comment #30, seems that you are not very into tech or especially into programming. Because if you was, you wouldn't talk such nonsenses.

Again, you have no proof to validate your claim, and are wasting valuable text space with your bogus statements...

On the other hand, there is plenty of legitimate proof that Android suffers from endless malware, and there is also a master key that functions as a back door. It must really suck knowing the entire world is able to access your credit card number, debit password, and personal information at will, huh?

Hey UrbanPhantom;
Are you one of those people that also think that osX does not have backdoors or trojans?

Here is your proof bro, "CODE". As long as it has a code, it could be hacked, ripped, stripped, rewritten and bugged. So unless you find something with out a code, or something that changes its algorithm every 10 seconds, you will always have a back door bro.

As I have said before, since you can't prove what you have said in your comment #30, I won't start proving something for you. Also I don't see any reasons why I should prove something for a person who is totally incompetent in programming. For those who are at least a bit competent in programing, they would never ask for such prove, because it is clear even without any proofs.

You can't have them. Google will sue MS for patent infringement.

This is the most ridiculous thing i've ever read on this blog.
do you really think google has patents for widgets ?
and if any company was to sue for notification bar then apple could have sued google waaay back, because they stole it from iphone.
as i would say in my own language.
Bongiyan naa maar chawla :)

We have live tiles that work like widgets.....

notification sure widgets dont fit WP style the tiles are what they have which are alive and updating as widgets

i know that, but it would be realy awesome if those live tiles work as widgets. i.e. being able to switch on or off wifi bluetooth etc with just one tap on the main screen rather than going into the settings to that. like a shortcut you may say.
