AAWP Insight #104: Microsoft job cuts
Published by Rafe Blandford at
In AAWP Insight #104, hosted by Steve and Rafe, we discuss the recent job cuts announced Microsoft. The main focus is on the impact of ex-Nokia employees and activities, but we also touch on the wider context and talk around Microsoft's future mobile device strategy. We also revisit our Lumia 930 review after a further week of testing, before commenting on the patience required while waiting for the Lumia Cyan update. We end by highlighting the advantage of app store updates for built in apps.
