Microsoft Apologizes For “Smoked By Windows Phone” Complaint

Microsoft has had to deal with a backlash they received after denying a user won a Windows Phone challenge, but was not given a reward. Sahas Katta won the “Smoked By Windows Phone” challenge when his Galaxy Nexus displayed the weather of 2 different cities faster than the Windows Phone. However the Microsoft store claimed that he had to show weather from 2 different states. Windows Phone evangelist Ben Rudolph apologized on Twitter and offered Katta a new laptop and Windows Phone. Rudolph even offered a rematch for Katta. [The Verge]
