There's got to be a name for that. The irritation at the necessity to have to migrate technology to keep up.

I liked my Windows Phone too, but it sucked once Microsoft really took it over and got rid of the Nokia branding. I use Android now and a lot of things are a bit better.

Although, speaking of Nokia...

If you really miss Windows Phone, I don't know about other brands or if this is a general Android thing, but Huawei has a mode with a simple interface that permits just the apps you want, and turns off ~80% of Android's advanced features. Sure your battery last a week and the interface looks very Windows-Phone-ish but then you can't DO squat other than your pre-permitted apps.

WTB a smaller size phone ~ 2009 with min-bevel. Not likely to happen.

Realised I've never seen a windows phone in the 7+ years they've been available.

Verizon and Palm, of all outfits, have created the phone Ab wants...

However it's Verizon-exclusive and not sold as a phone by itself, but as a plan add-on instead.

Google gave a $90m severance package to Andy Rubin, the creator of the Android mobile software, but concealed details of a sexual misconduct allegation that triggered his departure, the New York Times has reported.

According to unnamed sources who spoke to the Times, Google investigated and found credible claims from a female employee, who said Rubin forced her to perform oral sex in a hotel room in 2013.

Soon after, Larry Page, Google’s former CEO, asked for his resignation. However, the company continued to pay him millions of dollars in installments of $2m a month for four years.

Page praised Rubin when he left the company, saying in a 2014 public statement: “I want to wish Andy all the best with what’s next. With Android, he created something truly remarkable – with a billion-plus happy users.”

Last November, the Information exposed that Rubin had an “inappropriate relationship with a subordinate”, which violated company rules. At the time, a spokesperson for Rubin stated the relationship was consensual and not a misconduct violation because the female employee did not report to him, emphasizing that his decision to leave the company was unrelated.

According to the New York Times report, it was not the first time Rubin had got into trouble. In another instance, current and former Google sources told the Times, Google docked his bonus after security found bondage videos on his work computer.

Rie Rubin, his former wife, who divorced him this year, said in a civil suit that he engaged in “ownership relationships” with several other women while they were married.

In an email he sent to a woman in 2015, that was included in the suit, Rubin wrote: “Being owned is kinda like you are my property, and I can loan you to other people.”

Rubin, who joined Google in 2005 after the company acquired Android, was an integral part of growing its success. Often referred to as “the father of Android”, the engineer and entrepreneur created the software now used in 80% of the world’s smartphones.

"It serves as a stark reminder not to leave items charging on materials that could catch fire when hot," he said.

Yeah sure, everyone should have an asbestos pad they can leave their device on while it charges.
