Vodafone says rollout of Windows Phone 7.8 has been stopped
just 16% of potential Windows Phone 7.8 users receiving the update, it looks like it will be quite some time before Microsoft stops pushing out the update once it resumes the task.
Windows Phone 7.8 brings some of the capabilities of Windows Phone 8 to older handsets such as resizeable Live Tiles, twenty different colored themes and the Bing Lock screen wallpaper of the day, to name a few. The idea of the build is to keep those with older hardware as up to date as possible so that they won't automatically run off to Android or iOS once their two year tour of duty with their carrier expires.

Microsoft can careless, nokia is the one at stake here (no pun intended), it might even benefit Microsoft by diluting nokia's stock then acquiring it for cheap.

No offense, guy, but I hate when people butcher that phrase. It's "couldn't care less". By saying, can care less, you're saying they haven't reached the lowest possible level of caring yet.

Um no? Couldn't care less means that it cares, which isn't the case; in English grammar a phrase can't have two negatives about something, or else those negative phrases cancel each other, think about it, could not care less clearly refers to Microsoft actually caring, by saying can care less means that they can honestly give a f**k

Not that urban dictionary is the authority on anything, but check the first few out.

I am a Linguistics minor, but perhaps you should ask them. In any event, I would recommend at least reading a little more about it.

I am a chemical engineering major, so Grammer is irrelevant what so ever
