Thumbs down Sign the WP7S boycott..

Sign the WP7S boycott.. Unless you like Microsofts interpretation of an iPhone.. Lets reiterate all that M$ cut out..

- No flash support.
- No multitasking.
- No copy paste.
- No removable storage media.
- No other default apps.
- No USB mass storage.
- No sideloading apps (Non App Store).
- No customized UI.

M$ is saying F their current user base, its like they are saying you dummies should have got an iPhone.. I cant get any work done on this, 3D games and slick graphics are cool but not if I have to carry a laptop around with me. Sign this petition if you feel the same way.

Re: Sign the WP7S boycott..

the goal is only 1000 i dont think MS cares about 1000 people you should make the goal 5000 or 15000 im sure u could get that easily since so many people either feel betrayed & there are alot of people who just dont like MS

Re: Sign the WP7S boycott..

Or just get as many signatures as you can get, the more the better. The more sigs you get, the more MS will pay attention. you could even post this link on other winmo sites, there a bunch of them and not only in English as well.

Re: Sign the WP7S boycott..

I can understand Microsoft on all that except no copy and paste. How can you have Office and no clipboard functions?

Microsoft didn't cut flash btw, Adobe is just slow at developing.

This is just silly. I'll be sure to buy an extra phone to counteract you Tea Party folks...lol.

Celsius0010, I'm wondering what kind of work you won't be able to do with this?

Re: Sign the WP7S boycott..

Microsoft hasn't exactly said there will be no copy/paste. My guess is that there will be copy/paste within the various hubs, office, net, contacts, etc. You just won't be able to paste what you copied outside of that. Will make it tough for those of us who copy from email to new messages, docs, etc.

And revolt all you want, it's pretty foolish to start flaming on WP7S over 6 months before it will be released.

Actually they said exactly that and were quoted saying they left it out on purpose.

Re: Sign the WP7S boycott..

I didnt make this petition, I think we should be able to get over 10,000 signatures easy... Jus spread it around guys.. I never heard of the site before so If the petition closes at 1000 we will just make another.. The guy who made it was trying to get signatures on engadget so I posted it around a few other places.. Help spread the word
