    Microsoft have officially given up on Windows Mobile, with an announcement that there will be no more development - only bugfixes and security patches:

    ArsTechnica have a great article on the rise and fall of Windows Mobile:

    I had one once. It was a Nokia if I remember correctly. I tried and tried on the first day to like it. On the second day it got launched across the living room. Still got a dent in the wall to this day.

    Well well, Microsoft Games For Windows Live discontinued and now their mobile phone venture.

    Just about the only thing Microsoft are good for it seems are their OS's and that mostly because all major games are geared to Windows and most commercial ventures use MS Office.

    Writing on the cards?
