    it's fitting in with the (relatively) recent Skydrive online "USB key" by the sounds of it.

    WinMo certainly needs something like this, is can be bloody hard to find some applications if all you have is an intended use/function and not a specific product name...

    i doubt MS's version of appstore will be as successful as Apple's Appstore. most importantly is the restrictions apple put on their platform, as mentioned in the article.

    without restrictions, it'd be like opening a small jet of water in heavy rain, don't make much different. if under a roof, you open the tap, the room will be wet within no time

    im getting a bit tired of ms playing second fiddle to apple, its a tired old trend that needs to change.

    its just a store for programs.

    wait a short while, amazon will have one too.

    If anything microsoft is playing third string while apple has "copied" what Blackberry has done but has just did it on a bigger scale.

    Apple hasn't "invented" anything for years...that's what people like to tell themselves to justify over spending for a product that should be worth half the price.
