Windows Phone has been dead for years, but Microsoft finally just admitted it

Microsoft Windows Phone

When Windows Phone was first unveiled back in 2010 as "Windows Phone Series 7," its ambitions were lofty but its prospects were bleak. Many people covering the mobile market at the time were rooting for Microsoft to succeed, but we all knew that the likelihood of success was slim. Well, most of us knew, apart from a few delusional analysts. In fact, one such market watcher predicted that Microsoft's mobile market share would surpass both iOS and Android in 2013. Yeah, not so much.

Windows Phone was a breath of fresh air, but it was introduced at a time when iOS and Android adoption were both skyrocketing. There was simply no reason for developers to support a third platform that offered no real advantages compared to the market leaders. There was also obviously no reason for users to purchase a Windows Phone over an Android handset or an iPhone. Windows Phone was doomed from the start, and its death has been prolonged and grueling. Now, however, we can at least begin to pay our respects, because Microsoft has finally admitted that its mobile platform is no more.

Microsoft and Facebook just laid a massive cable across the Atlantic Ocean to make your life better

undersea cable

If you've ever felt the incredible frustration of wiring up a dozen gadgets in a home office, just imagine trying to connect a wire between two continents. That's exactly what a partnership between Microsoft, Facebook, and communications corp Telxius just finished doing with an incredibly powerful, 4,000-mile-long cable that is now laying some 17,000 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Marea subsea cable, as it is called, is capable of some truly impressive data transfer speeds. Weighing in at over 10 million pounds — which Microsoft points out is equal to 34 blue whales — the cable has a transmission capacity of 160 terabits per second. To put that in perspective, Microsoft says that's enough bandwidth to stream 71 million HD movies at the same time, and that it's approximately 16 million times faster than the average home internet connection. Wow.
