  1. So the Microsoft Windows Store is full of scammers.


    "Full of" may be a little strong (maybe not).
    But you have to be careful where ever you shop. There is a post over at the JRiver Media Center forum about a guy RAMESH NAGALLA who is selling JRiver for $3.99 - and bunch of other programs that he doesn't own. Apparently he has a lot of software for sale (JRiver, Zoom Player, Tomb Raider, etc.) that he doesn't have licensing agreement for.
    I bet it would be tough to get refund from this guy.

    -here's an article on the situation (old but relevant):

    Microsoft need to get tougher on this. BTW - Apple charges $100 year to put apps on their store (making less like a crook will make a profit before he/she is caught and kicked off the site).

    Why is Microsoft so full of fail?

    You do realize that right now, the carriers' money is on Android, right? And that they see very little incentive in offering handsets with Microsoft's platform, hm? So Microsoft had to work with these guys. Period. Once Windows Phone is an established
    and successful platform, I'm sure they'll drop all this carrier testing **** for Microsoft code, and it'll be a better world for every WP user. But as long as WP fate is on the balance... we're gonna have to suck it up.

  3. why is the microsoft store full of crappy apps?

    they need to start putting apps worth getting instead of these fake ones or
    low

    quality ones. its a shame the microsoft hasn't actually caught up with
    apple
    or even google. if they don't step up their A game they wont last the next decade. seriously microsoft. why the
    crappy knock off apps and why are none of the apps people are actually using like tumblr, kik, instagram, snap chat in your store?

    So the Microsoft Windows Store is full of scammers.

    hey. dont be so sceptical about the new main feature of windows 10. you can now buy or try software via a software that pretends not to be a internet browser entirely layouted for showing you colorful squares with descriptions below it...ehhhh....waiiiiit a secooond... *Zip

    also -> buy software via a bought software ... -> INCEPTION! *chuckle

    Hold on I am just receiving something...
    MS-Marketing department live leaked communication:

    - "Yo Cyril I think we really managed to sell our users a Windows 7/8 with an App Store that will generate even more turnaround for us and we just called it Windows 10, isn't that awesome and fabulous at the same time?"

    - "Yeah Christopher, thats right, topkek!!! Apple was right, you really can sell anything for money to the common plebs as long as you put it in a golden looking box and pretend it's a giveaway."

    - "Ha yup, and wait until in 5 years when everyone will believe that an OS without an integrated AppStore is no real OS anymore"

    - "Mhm... that means bye bye Linux........ EERRRRR wait what? ... Linux had an AppStore almost from the beginning of time...?!?!? They call it 'package manager' you say? ??? What!? All apps are FREE??? You gotta be kidding me. What are we gonna do?"

    - "Don't worry... no one will notice. We just do what we always did. Make as much money as we can until everyone woke up"

    - "Hell yeah... that's gonna take some time. HIGH FIVE!"
