Microsoft is still far behind in terms of smartphone market share. Such stand-out features like the camera help drive sales, but it is not enough. Windows Phones have several innovative features like live tiles that make them interesting. It will take much more effort though to get closer to the market shares of Android and the iPhone. Microsoft cannot bet on Google or Apple to make mistakes. Apple is likely going to have a major sales push this year if the rumors are true about the $99 iPhone. Microsoft and its hardware partners need to continue to innovate and offer cooler smartphones than Google and Apple if in any way possible.

Kendall Jenner leads a Complicated Life
Kendall Jenner, and the complicated life she leads with friends, fans and family, prove one thing. And that is that she knows how to hang in there amidst the media hype and mass publicity.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
