The fools in Redmond don't seem to understand that a new Cortana bullet-point is NOT a selling-point.    What's next?   Lumia . . . er . . . Windows Phone . . .  er . . .  Microsoft Phone(?) KILLER FEATURES:   - They turn on - Speakers - Can make calls   Only a matter of time before MS axes this dead platform completely. But, Zune-like, they love to prolong the bleeding. It was already too late at the close of Windows Phone's first year on the market. THAT was...
So Pegatron et al plan to get into the Sapphire biz. I see what they did there.
Asphalt 8 is fantastic. Lots of fun, and it plays as great as it looks.

In most democratic, progressive countries, LGBT issues are treated as Human Rights issues, backed by enforceable legislation.Even if Apple's performance in this metric, or if the way the metric was implemented is just "posturing", the cause is perfectly acceptable, and I'd certainly encourage it. Just another...
