    Haha they were trying to show the speech control of the phone, the guy from Microsoft tells the phone: "Audible play Game of Thrones" the phone replies: "Searching St. Louis Missouri".

    Why wasn't Windows Phone 7 scalable in the first place? Seems like they don't know what they're doing.

    Funny to read comments

    "Features aside, the whole look and feel seems cluttered and confusing with all these new MS products.

    maybe i'm just getting old and confused."

    Windows 8 as a product is confusing as hell. Is it for touch devices? Is this a brand new complete re-write of windows? Or is it just a start screen? Or even has a normal windows OS sitting underneath? What is RT? Which version do I buy? How do my programs look? Will they even work? Where is windows explorer? etc.

    Apple made it pretty damn clear what OS X was back in 2000 or whatever it was.

    ^ I don't think so. The last apple update stopped older apps from working, meaning there must have been some big changes other than iCloud. Android 2/3/4 are aimed at phones,cheap tablets and, powerful tablets respectively -- from what I can tell.

    At least with windows 8 I can get that the whole metro thing is a step towards a device agnostic workflow, where you can use the same app on your phone, desktop or tablet, and they sync via the cloud. If they can make it work, it sounds pretty nice.

    I still don't think it makes sense for desktops, and I think it could look really shit if app developers don't make icons to fit the aesthetic, but I actually really like the tile paradigm for phones/tablets.

    I just got a Nokia 920 and am loving it. The skype app is very well done. Until Jony redesigns iPhone's tired UI I'll be here for a while.
