Thats because they want more money and a piece of that app store pie.

They use to be the top and no one could touch them. They no longer are even close to that and they dont know how to handle the loss of power.

When your top dog you can get away with a lot of crap. When your not top dog only the best will move you forward and your carp will slow you down.

The bad part is they don't know how to do things different any more. This happens to a lot of companies who are not able to coop with change and how things work.

So far only rumors. MS hasnt been know to listen to users. But when you have a NEW OS doing worse than Vista then maybe they will listen this time :-)

Microsoft was at the top of its game when a tech ran the show (Bill gates) but they where still cut throat (Ballmer)

Now you take away the tech and only have the cut throat your going to make a lot of mistakes.

When no tech is running it all the choices you make will be based on how much money can we make. When you have a real tech running it you will get choices of "How good can we make this?"
