A while ago, Microsoft released Halo Waypoint, an app to follow the latest news from the Halo World.
For promoting it, they placed on the official website this image (already replaced):
I don't know what you think about it, but I find it very hilarious!
Have you ever seen a company that places their own phone with competitors phones, keeping it in a corner, half hidden, maybe too shy for a direct match, with the competitor names written in a BIG WHITE font, and their "Windows Phone 7" in grey, much smaller, as a remind to its lesser success??
Of course, after that someone let them know the problem, they switched the image with an inverted one, but it's still a big gaffe.
I'll continue to criticize: when the Nokia Lumia 900 was launched, there were rumours about the upgrade path to Windows Phone 8. Current devices won't be upgradable, the rumor said.
Of course if it was true, the sales of the Nokia Lumia would have been hurted a lot, so, Microsoft promptly denied the rumour, promising the upgrade.
What happened last week? Windows Phone 8 was announced and the upgrade won't be available.
A great way to thank faithful customers, right?
