Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona saw the unveiling of Windows Phone 7 Series, or Windows Mobile 7 as a lot of people with undoubtedly refer to it as, Microsoft’s latest browser OS.
This is something that the blogosphere and tech communities have both been waiting for, for a long time, hearing about for a long time, rumouring about for a long time and holding breath for too.
Windows Mobile 6.x was always about business productivity. Windows Mobile 6.5.x tried to bring Windows Mobile to the consumer and user centric markets, however was met with a lot of critique (not from me by any means).
Looking to capitalize on the success of Windows 7 and hoping 7 was their lucky number, Microsoft have announced Windows Phone 7 Series, which looks set to change all of that with a totally re-written from nothing to something (awesome) mobile operating system and not just a refresh like previous versions.
No, I’m not talking about a group of Apple fans sat around eating cake, I’m talking about a lot of Apple fans seeming to be quite annoyed with Mr Jobs and his crew and it would seem to be sparked by the iPhone 2.0 firmware and MobileMe.
I was doing the normal rounds with a quick read of some of my RSS feeds and found this article.
I sounded like a topic to start a row between the fan boys, the Microsoft lovers (that’s me) and the people sitting on the fence and staying the hell out of it.

PS: Did I mention that LiveMesh is free, works on PC, mobile devices via m.mesh.com and soonwill be supporting mobile devices using an actual client and Mac support too. Did I say it was free?
So in the news yesterday on TorrentFreak, Engadget to name a few news sites was the talk of the agreement to mass mail people about downloading of content from the Internet Ã¢â‚¬Ëœillegally’.
According to news, the big six ISP’s in the UK will be part of this deal being Virgin Media, BT, Orange, Tiscali, Sky and Carphone Warehouse (AOL and TalkTalk). The current deal seems to be that they will issue warning letters to people they suspect of downloading content, a step which Virgin has already taken of late to be much ignored it would seem.
