Microsoft Botches Windows Phone Challenge
In an effort to promote its not-so-popular Windows Phone handsets, Microsoft recently announced a "Smoked by Windows Phone" challenge. The challenge: See if your smartphone can do what a Windows Phone can do...but faster. Unfortunately, Microsoft's campaign flopped in two ways: First, a tech writer smoked the Windows Phone with his Android handset. Second, Microsoft refused to award him the prize, which was a special-edition laptop valued at $1000. Er...yeah.
