The payments and sales data sent anything surprising though. Its been on MS's site for months that the first payments will be in feburary, along with details on how you get stats on sales data. This articles basically quoted 2 people who didn't bother to read the process details when they signed up.
As for the reports of slow sales, they also sit next to reports of a lack of devices making them meaningless.
Best FACT post so far. So instead of Apple Insider doing even 5min of research to find out that this was known BEFORE any developers could sign up, they just posted this Link Bait article.
Here is the actual real information from 10/04 which is before any apps could be submitted.
In that some key information....
"Shortly after new Windows Phones become broadly available, Marketplace will begin providing developers with individual insights on their app’s performance within Marketplace. The reporting will soon become more automated and self service"
"And perhaps most importantly, developers can expect the first payout of sales to date to take place in February."
This is from a blog post anyone can read. I have no doubt that if you registered as a developer there would be some kind of information with this blog info and way more provided to you.
So my guess is that these people complaining in this blog post, simply did not read it. To them I suggest....
Now I never thought the fine bloggers at AI came up with this information on their own....instead they just regurgitated this from other posts on the internet..
The only real questions left are....
Is there some central Anti-MS site that all of you bloggers copy and paste from?
Is there some round robin deal, where its your turn to do no real research, spew some Anti-ms BS and then the others copy off of you? Then its passed on to the next blogger to do their part?
