Google Employee, 04 Mar 2019 Microsoft shares are not healthy anymore. Microsoft is next Blackberry.I totally agree with the comments here. Microsoft has lost its share in the mobile market. RIP Windows Phone. RIP Smart Bands. What next?
Microsoft shares are not healthy anymore. Microsoft is next Blackberry.
Microsoft's international management is so weak,due to which the management in each and every project and subsidary that Microsoft owns in diferent countries is weak as well and as a result the employees don't feel motivated enough to work......That is why the company will continue closing and reducing its business.I hope that it will start thinking to the right direction,as if it doesn't-sooner or later it will fill into bancruptcy....

Microsoft, failure over failure.
Throw all poop to the wall and keep whatever sticks. We should limit software patent to 20 years so they got competitor, stop milking windows and do real upgrade instead putting more telemetry, ads, uncontrollable behavior and making windows/ offices a yearly subscription
Giorgos, 02 Mar 2019"Of course, the Band will also continue to work as before sans the cloud functionality. Howeve... moreYour point on resetting is correct...
The main problem is or was Windows Phone 10 essentially is malware, during testing it crashed to varying degrees every phone it was tested on
You couldn't remove it e.g all you had to do was to say release a major update Windows Phone 12 on every Windows Phone 10 to solve the issues, that shows you how after 2 years Microsoft abandoned phones altogether
To further emphasise the point approx a year after the release of Windows Phone 10 Microsoft had stopped selling phone
Windows Phone 8 is the only working and viable Operating System which is superceded by WP 10
With Microsoft essentially not making phones apps are left to wither on the vine, essentially no third party app the app store would only have the one app
I understand that Blackberry app store officially closes on 31/12/2019
Microsoft will in the future close the app store as most app simply are not updated
CptPower, 02 Mar 2019Mi offers a lot better devices and services. Not really, no.
"Of course, the Band will also continue to work as before sans the cloud functionality. However, if you reset your band for any reason then you won't be able to set it up again, which explains why Microsoft was willing to offer a refund."
Another great example of dumbed-down cloud-dependent trash.
I stick to Xiaomi for service longevity, even Mi Band 1 is still very well supported.
