Picture mirroring with MS Your Phone
This is definitely a version 1.0 as it only mirrors pictures in your Camera app. If you use another app such as Open Camera, PhotoScan, Messenger, Snapseed, Google Maps etc those photos will not be available.

They don't need to make their own android phones because it's already relatively simple to create a Microsoft android phone by installing Microsoft Launcher and Microsoft apps for android. These include Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Edge, One Drive, Office Lens, Xbox, News, OneNote, Authenticator, Translator, SharePoint, To Do, Remote Desktop, Teams, Staff Hub etc etc. I'd say it's already pretty much a fait accompli. I've done it, it works very well, and I'm happy!
Mine too. Ultimate folly. Within the next 6 months they lost every contract they had and went bust. They made the most elementary mistake - they forgot to consider how the clients might feel about this. Every IT company needs to remember the basics, starting with "At 5 o'clock the entire intellectual base of the company gets up from their desks and goes home."
Microsoft has more spare cash than God. They don't give a damn about "failed" phones - they'll keep on trying different things until they get it right. That is the Microsoft way.
BTW - I can think of a lot of phone manufacturer executives who'd give their leftie for the same share of the smartphone market that MS has. A little bit of a lot is still a lot!
Well you've obviously not upgraded for some time, so how the blazes could you possibly know what you're talking about? Thirty five years of experience has taught me that actually you can trust Microsoft. And Windows 10 is their best OS yet.
Cornz1 - if it doesn't run with Windows 10 then it's about time you got rid of that Athlon 64 system!
Don't assume I'm some naive fan boy. I don't owe MS anything and if something better came along I'd use it. But I've tried virtually everything else, including Unix for years professionally, and keep coming back. (Cue the Linux trolls - I've only got one thing to say to them "drivers and driver installs")
So none of you guys use Google? Have Chrome installed? I believe, by any objective assessment, that you've already given up more privacy than anything Microsoft would dream of taking. Also Microsoft doesn't trawl your photographs and documents for information or use your contacts for their own nefarious purposes or record your query and ad usage to target you with more crap like some companies I could think of.
