So let me get this straight: Microsoft bought Skype a few years ago. EVERYONE with an internet connection said Microsoft was going to kill it off for iOs, osx & android. That it was going to "start sucking" and that we should all hunt down alternatives. Instead Microsoft improved it. Gave Skype features that came to OSX, iOS & Android first. But Microsoft is still a bad guy? Apple buys hopstop, kills off windows phone support before the ink can dry on the check, and that's ok with everyone? This is why I'll NEVER own anything with an Apple logo on it EVER.

Its a gateway drug to becoming a self-righteous, hypocritical douchebag. I'll be staying firmly out of the iSheep camp. Oh & FanDroids, you do know your next right? I'm assuming you're not that stupid. This is proof that apple could literally kidnap a child, strap them to a chair, clockwork orange their eyes open & force them to watch as a puppy is slowly tortured then brutally killed, & the internet (especially the verge & bgr) will still treat apple like the 2'nd coming of Christ.

This does show that Apple is very much threated by Microsoft and Windows Phone. The well dried up for the Cupertino giant & there's no where left but down. I hope Steve Ballmer sent Tim Cook a cake for crowning Windows Phone a legitimate iPhone alternative.
