Dan Lyons Spends a Month without Apple or Google

Do you think you could spend a month without using anything made by Apple or Google? One tech geek named Dan Lyons (the Fake Steve Jobs guy)decided he would see if Microsoft can win customers back by spending a month using only Microsoft products. I use Microsoft products all the time and I don't think I can make a month and get work done.

Lyons says after 30 days using nothing but Microsoft products the company could when consumers like him back. I think all Microsoft really needs to finally score a win in the smartphone realm is a Windows Phone smartphone with decent hardware at a decent price. I'm just not convinced that Lumia 900 is the device.

Perhaps the most unique feature on the new smartphone is the 3-D visuals. Using four infrared cameras, the phone can gauge where your head is and redraws images on the screen continually so they appear 3-D. Amazon calls it “Dynamic Perspective.” The technology allows users to tilt the phone for mor ...
