I wouldn't be the least bit suprized if it was actually it was a scam between Microsoft and the cell phone providers to force people to incur overages or upgrade their data plans.

this is so typical of a big company, blame the little people...microCRAP needs to get their CRAP together and admit that their product was not ready for general use...this is a testing phase, just like Vista

Hardly, we're using 14 devices in work right now, this moment, over in the UK (HD7, Trophie and 2 LG Optimus 7 devices). Not one complaint, which is quite odd seeing as they belong to a wide variety of staff members, who usually like to complain about anything and everything.

ALl being used 'generally' for business (Exchange) and play.


Now... let's talk about the first release of iOS or Android (Droid) shall we?

I'm guessing it didn't even occur to you that, just maybe, they're telling the truth on this one? Questioning the truthfulness of a statement is one thing, automatically assuming that they are lying beyond the shadow of a doubt, however, is pure naivete that stems from someone who drinks the anti-corporate Kool-Aid a little too liberally.

There was talk based on what some customers had installed and not installed that it was actually part of Microsoft's LIVE services.

Soo... if it really is the 3rd party company causing the problem, Microsoft is supposed to take full responsibility and say "My bad."??? Because that makes perfect sense. Pull your head out of your ass. If it's somebody else, it's somebody else.. what's the big deal? These products are a collaboration of many companies and many more when looking at software apps. There are ALWAYS going to be times when somebody fucks up and has to take the blame.

Unfortunately comments such as the ones we responded to are fueled by the wording of this article. Using terms like "Pointing the finger" and "blaming someone else" is totally misleading the reader. Sadly on Tom's, you won't find articles like this directed at Apple, despite the majority of readers being PC users.
