What Russell and a lot of others do not understand is that Microsoft is not a one man company anymore. It was founded by Bill Gates and he is the Grand Daddy of all - but they have grown so big now and if anyone thinks that they are moving forward in every field based on how Gates 'get's it' then they are fooling themselves.
Maybe Gates is not as comfortable with Mobile division as he is comfortable with the Home Media/XBOX. I am sure that he is more comfortable with the operating system side of things. I would not really pay attention to this retrot by Russell - as this is something he likes to do so much - more like a mongrel barking at the sun.
