Microsoft is stupid to be a bad Loser in Smoked by Windows Phone Challenge

Smoked by Windows Phone Campaign goes bad for Microsoft.

Microsoft is hosting a challenge in there stores to let smartphone users compete with Windows Phones on completing tasks. If they are faster than a Windows Phone they get $100. Microsoft upped that amount over the weekend to $1,000, which drew out more savvy smartphone users like Sashas Katta. He actually smoked the Windows Phone with his Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone. The task was to check the weather in two cities. He managed to do that because he had the locked screen switched off in Android 4.0 and had already two widgets on the home screen showing the weather in two different cities. The competing Windows phone had also two tiles already set to show the weather. So it was just about getting faster to the home screen. The Microsoft Store in Santa Clara declared him not the winner though without giving a real reason.

This was a bad idea because Sashas has a blog and the story is spreading like wild fire around the tech blogs. How can Microsoft be so stupid? If they just would have paid up and the whole thing never would have been talked about. Damage control is underway though. Microsoft's Ben Rudolph has already tweeted that he will make it right.
