Not even Microsoft execs care about Windows 10 Mobile anymore

Microsoft has finally realized that not many people are using the phone and apps, so there will be no more any new features or hardware for the Windows 10 mobile.

Bad news for Windows Mobile fans!

The company had done everything but officially admit it was all over - and it's now effectively done this in a tweet yesterday by the head of Microsoft's mobile business, Joe Belfiore. The Metro UI was also featured in the company's largely unpopular Windows 8 desktop OS, possibly contributing to consumer hesitation towards the mobile counterpart.

The film is still largely shrouded in secrecy, but Monday we may get some new clues, because a new trailer is officially dropping. A new trailer, shown on a Disney-owned network, followed by the opening of digital cash registers everywhere.


Belfiore's series of tweets confirmed that Microsoft would continue to support the platform through bug fixes and security updates. Microsoft founder Bill Gates recently said that he had switched to Android. He affirmed there will be bug fixes and security updates, but no new hardware in future.

Unfortunately, none of that worked, and the culprit can be zoomed in to the lack of enough app in the Windows ecosystem. They tried "VERY HARD" to incentivize the app developers.

Belfiore's announcement comes after Microsoft launched its Edge web browser for Android and iOS.

A few months back, Microsoft msft ended support for its Windows Phone 8.1 platform. Microsoft tried something different with Windows Phone, but it wasn't enough.

We're now just a week away from the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and Microsoft is warning Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring Insiders to check their Windows Insider settings today. They even went so far as to make an Android phone as bait for users and developers - to too little avail.

Packers, Cowboys to write next chapter of storied rivalry
Yes, I think Rodgers will give this team all sorts of problems but I'm betting on the Cowboys getting back into gear offensively. Rodgers will be able to carry the majority of the offensive workload, but Green Bay needs to keep the Dallas defense honest.
