    At 30:29, did Paul just say "I would never use an Apple product...i hate those products..." ? If so, doesn't he use an iPhone?

      In reply to Bats:

      No no, if you listen to the way he said that line, he said it in a way where he was imitating someone else saying that (in a mocking type way). :) It wasn't a statement of fact, because, yea, he uses an iPhone these days (and did before Windows Phone 7 arrived in 2010 as well)

    Paul, the reaction you had to Nadine Kano liking your FB post is the same reaction I had when you Twitter DM'd me a Merry Christmas back in 2010! #MindBlown

    I remember that article. The reasoning was really weird ... something like this.

    "I'm really in love with Windows Phone and don't like Apple at all. For instance, they just launched the iPod Nano, its really ugly. It would have been much better if the UI looked like Windows Phone. Therefore they must have not copied its UI because they agreed not to copy Windows Phone".

    What? I agree it was not as good looking as the iPod Touch. But they could have used squares with rounded corners like the iPod Touch. I have no I idea why they did not, maybe the low res ...

    As for the rest of the interview liked the writing part, how you started and all that. Lovely. Live long and prosper.

    I think this was the best First Ring so far.
