    @BitFlipper: I agree, my sales consultant appeared baffled as to why I would want a Windows Phone. He said that he doesn't think windows phone would ever catch up with iPhone/Android, and that was within the first minute of him selling it to me. Salesmen always go for the safest bet.


    One day a fairly intelligent fly buzzed around the web so long without lighting that the spider appeared and said, "Come on down." But the fly was too clever for him and said, "I never light where I don't see other flies and I don't see other flies in your house." So he flew away until he came to a place where there were a great many other flies. He was about to settle down among them when a bee buzzed up and said, "Hold it stupid, that's flypaper. All those flies are trapped." "Don't be silly," said the fly, "they're dancing." So he settled down and became stuck to the flypaper with all the other flies.

    Moral: There is no safety in numbers, or in anything else.
