Microsoft has revamped its mobile search offering, dropping location-based and iTunes app searching into HTML5 layouts. On an iPhone the new version of m.bing.com includes Google-style swipe-navigation of images, with pretty zoom effects, along with a shopping interface organised by category. It's also tied into the Apple iTunes …
"Lets Bing it"
Some ludicrously obvious Product Placement in this week's Hawaii Five-o when the immortal line "We don't know... lets Bing it..." were uttered!
Hawaii Five-o has been full of Windows Phone 7 placement since the very start of the new series. As much as I'm fan of Windows Phone 7, I still cringe a little at the extremely obvious product placement. I don't mind a little product placement in TV shows, but sometimes it goes a too far.
The very idea of a remake is appalling anyway. What next, a revival of Quincy, or God forbid Ironside? They should leave these shit old shows in the ironic grave they inhabit.
There's also a word-for-word remake of the Jack Warner flick "The Blue Lamp" on the way except it's set in LA & the Jack Warner role is portrayed by 50Cent.
No-one, but no-one ever,ever says or will ever say "Lets Bing it" IRL unless it comes to mean something like "Let's label it as a bit shit & a second-rate also-ran"
Windows Phone 7 is a hobbled phone platform
Why would anyone buy the only 'smartphone' on the planet that is incapable of handling any HTM5.
This is the same phone platform that Ballmer banned open-source software that is licensed under the GPL. Forbidden. Then there's DRM to stop you jailbraking (this goes much further than iPhone).
Microsoft is still the same old Microsoft, and unfortunately, Windows Phone 7 is the product from a management stuck in a bygone era.
Re: Windows Phone
Actually Android is the same old Microsoft and that is the problem. Windows on the desktop was never that restricted, and that is part of the reason it was so successful.
Woah there, IT Specialist
I don't bother normally, but I just checked out your previous posts.
Boy, Microsoft must have killed your pet, or something.
You've been wishing WP7 dead since January last year. It's clear by now that:
a) You're not the platform's biggest fan
b) Steve Ballmer's not your best mate
c) You need something else in your life
We get it now. You're never going to buy a WP7 phone. Fine. Thanks for your input.
I've got a WP7 phone and like it a lot. Our 'IT Specialists' have selected WP7 as our platform of choice over and above Blackberry, and I'm seeing more WP7 phones in people's hands.
Let's just see how it plays out... but I doubt that your bile will influence many people.
