Apple switches to Windows on iPhone

Secret deals


Fruit themed toymaker Apple has decided
to reject its own operating system on the iPhone in favor of Windows Mobile OS.

According to a company insider the
change is needed because it was impossible to get the next generation 3G phones to operate under existing OSX guidelines. Although Apple is not happy with the change our insider said they have worked with Microsoft to develop an interface that looks identical and there was a belief that users would be none the wiser.

The Windows OS is proving more reliable
than OSX, which has been a target for hackers ever since Apple tried to lock the iPhone into exclusive deals. A source within Microsoft said that the two companies had so much in common that it was logical that they should work together on such a flagship product.
