Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

“Microsoft confirms, kills Courier in one fell swoop”

The “Courier” project is an example of this type of effort and its technologies will be evaluated for use in future Microsoft offerings, but we have no plans to build such a device at this time.

Fu.

 

It seems, however, that things just didn’t manage to take shape, and word was handed down very recently that the incubation period had reached its conclusion — sans product — and resources would be directed elsewhere.

We wouldn’t want Microsoft to be offering a cool, innovative product, would we? I mean, that console thing, fine, it’s for those damn brainless gamers anyway, it doesn’t matter that it’s competent, but a productivity thing that’s better than anything else on the market? Not for us. Let’s market the hell out of those Kin phones instead.
