Microsoft ends notifications for Win-Phone 7.5 and 8.0

The obvious

I loved my 930 too, there are still things you could do *really quickly* with it that you simply cannot do with the iShinyThing (which is what I moved to when the battery just died one day, and landfill android never really appealed.)

Many of the layouts were just intuitive, connecting to APs was a doddle, the built in social media integration from early on was just something else and I really liked live tiles.

Ultimately what killed it was politics, they could have got over the kernel pain eventually - but the phone guys weren't in Nadella's 'tribe' and anyone who knows about the inner workings of MS will know that the tribalism is fierce and the victors are rarely gracious.
