@bgoldberg You want me to be specific.. Here you go.. If you want to stump people with obscure question, you can stump anyone. It looks rather narrow minded to gauge someone because the interviewee does not have a hobbie. I would rather see if the guy has the right attitude and the right skill. From the post it looks like the guy graduated ages ago and has been in the workforce for 5-6 years. Not everyone in the world has eidetic memory to answer the dinner they had 5 years ago. It might be a little prejudiced to judge you based on the post, but easing someone into the interview would do a world of good for the interviewee..

I believe this is the most commented post on Pandodaily to date. So now we know being wrong and having ill constructed arguments will get you higher user engagement..
I am yet to see an article which discusses in depth what MS has done the past week. I read articles about individual products and reviews but none about the overall vision of MS and how the last week releases fit in. Glad you touched it..

Google needs to do the following so it can differentiate from Amazon Fire offerings.
1. Buy Spotify or create a music streaming service and tightly integrate it with Google Play
2. Offer a subscription service similar to Amazon Prime
3. Keep innovating Android in ways Amazon cannot use them (eg. Google Now )
4. Make live streaming TV more visible

@trevoragilbert Very true..We already see the trend with iMessages and partially in Google Voice. The carriers are resisting hard to let go of the additional revenue they get with SMS. Apple/Google are always trying ways to circumvent the carriers.

@akwyz If you remember what Steve told Larry "Focus is the key".. Though apple would like to have end-to-end user experience with their products, it is highly unlikely they would buy AT&T. And buying AT&T would put them in a catch 22 situations. It might put them in the same situation Microsoft currently is in with the OEMs after the Windows Surface Tablet show.
The major reason for this particular trend is because the industry is so disruptive, even established players can lose ground in 4-5 years.(eg. Nokia,RIM and to an extent Microsoft). These tech companies have understood they cannot sit on their achievements. These companies are constantly innovating and are promoting start-up culture even when they are in stage 2 and stage 3. But all these leads to better and higher quality products and companies are moving faster and innovating at speed when their very existence is threatened.
@StuartAndrewClark You are absolutely right! I dont see many articles on the unification effort from Microsoft. The product strategies are finally coming together. I believe the next step would also be bringing the Windows 8 core to XBox 720 and Microsoft Surface ( I mean the old surface table ). And i am pissed that my phone will be obsolete soon, but this is the best way forward for the platform. I am guessing, Xbox 360 users would see a simiar fate when games developed for XBox 720 would not be backward compatible.
1 year, 5 months ago on Windows Phone 8 Is Microsoft’s Last-Ditch Effort to Remain Relevant
@nathanielmott @nickviviani I have a WP7.5 and i dont think the changes to the start screen are change for the sake of change. This might be pretty useful for me. I have four email accounts on my start screen. Instead of using up 4 separate medium sized tiles, i would love to use 4 of them in one single tile, having the same information. And since the changes are optional, there should not be much concern for anyone.
I really hope the company comes back..I love the Nokia Lumia devices. There is just one way to convince people to buy Nokia.. Build a phone like no other. It also depends on how well Windows Phone 8 would be. It is not enough to compete to win, but to surpass iOS and andriod in features and build quality. They need to disrupt the market in someway to gain mind share and marketshare..
