    Now that SETS is announced why do you think that EDGE development is done? Paul said that sometimes back....

    About the slowing down of iPhones:

    1) You say they have been doing it for years but Apple said it started with iOS 10.2.1 which has not even been out for a year yet

    2) The VAST majority of iPhone users will not care about this at all as long as the phone keeps running, which is apparently what this change is designed to allow when the battery degrades

    3) I hear that there is a class action lawsuit being organised about this - it should be fun to watch

    What is the killer requirement ("app") for an Andromeda?

    From a market perspective I see a combo of two areas 1. it should be the best "Phablet" to do the things Microsoft promises on the desktop (productivity (+"creator items), gaming, maybe AR/VR) . 2. It should an Andromedroid ...

    Technically, I think Microsoft has the capability to do the above at this point; to me it seems like they have been assembling this capacity deliberately over several years. Also, various news items and product launches show Microsoft/Apple/Google are all clearly in a convergence race (Samsung also trying to get into it). If this race is real, I don't know why Microsoft would stop at a few desktop/phone integration software offerings such as what they are building in current and upcoming Windows 10 releases. Why not just finish the job and come out with a reference Windroid HW? Obviously in Microsoft's position, you don't want Google beating you to the convergence finish line ...

    Honestly, once the Window shell can reorient itself for smaller screen a la WinMo 10, but run the plethora of Win32 apps, on the market yet still be powered by ARM, continuum will live on. Their mobile play is going to be running full fledged windows on a device.
