Windows is still in the court.. waiting for its fate to be decided, whether to go to the open and free like android, or jailed like the iPhone and needs to devise its plan for jailbreaking..

I think he should be awarded for this one. He did point it out in the first place not only for the public to know but for microsoft to find a fix. What he did wrong is posted it in public immediately without consulting it to higher ups.

But if microsoft is a good company, it should acknowledge these kinds of efforts and they should be open for their flaws.

If he was an engineer for Apple and posted something similar, Cook would have personally strangled him and hid the body, all by himself.

I don't think any of the apple engineers would ever do that.. they are too proud of being apple engineers.. and brainwashed too..

this is not a security issue... this a payment issue... it is for all those that want to get things for free aka the pirate community

this store hack has been public knowledge for weeks now... it was rather foolish of him to post about it in a public blog

but anyway... not a security issue... you wont be hacked from outside... it is YOU the user who will be doing the hacking and flipping the bird to Microsoft...

currently you can get every single Microsoft software for FREE

long live piracy

Its not Android to only get updated every 5 or 6 months. Windows Phone 8 update is already available for HTC phones since today morning and Lumias to follow shortly. It didn't even take 5-6 weeks for the 1st update...Windows 8 is a different story though...it doesn't matter even if it takes 5-6 months cos its a damn Desktop OS...long term...sorry to hurt your feeling TROLL...
