    I heard it was a sleeper so I decided to check it out. Pretty meh. The site runs great on it though. This new board is very consistent among different browsers. I like.

    We make fun of the one guy in the office who has a Windows phone. We also secretly suspect that he's gay.

    Yeah I have an ultra cheap 50 dollar Lumia 521 that I use as a backup, and loaded 8.1, and the thing runs really nice. They even have a swyping keyboard which isn't as good as Swype or Swiftkey, but still, not bad. Cortana isn't bad either. Google doesn't support it though and with Google Now, Keep, Voice, Doc/Sheets , etc being items I use all the time, its a bit painful. Also, Cortana, while not being bad, isn't nearly as good as Google Now's voice recognition, which seems to get better and better where I hardly ever have to repeat myself.

    I have gotten really good with the windows swype keyboard. I love Cortana, not one problem, ever. ask her too do impressions, that's pretty funny.. I call it a tie between goggle now and cortana., in my personal experience..
