Widows Phone 7 update arriving

Written by David Stellmack

No promised cut & paste support after all
Microsoft has released the first update for Windows Phone 7, but the “cut & paste” support that was originally slated for this update has apparently been chucked in favor of getting the update out. The “cut & paste” support is still on track for an upcoming update.

Those that own a Windows Phone 7 should get a message about the update being available, but they will have to connect to a PC or Mac to actually install the update, according to the whispers that we hear.

While this update is primarily a collection of bug fixes, we are told that the next update should feature more in the way of adding some new functionality than this one did.

No, this update does not include any advantages of the scheduled update. It's just a preparation:
"This first update for Windows Phone is designed to improve the software update process itself."

I wonder what a phone made for widows would be like...

But seriously, guys. Spell check doesn't catch everything.

Wow! as in wow, not as in world of warcraft "wow".

First update since November. I feel safer? already.

Thanks to the whole update procedure, if I plug my phone into an available USB port, my phone will be effectively wiped out.

How so? Because of another Microsoft update in Win 7 64 bit on my PC. Apparently, Win 7 identified my hardware as having a Microsoft keyboard-"Intellitype". They are correct. However, having installed the update, it wiped out my mainboard USB ports. Device mgr, says "unknown". Uninstall, same problem. Every flash drive I plugged in dies, and nothing comes of other devices (if I am lucky).

MS said there was a known issue. Forget the KB. Afraid to plug any external HDD or anything with memory let alone my phone.

Not sure why I need an update anyway.

No good apps. Found only 3 good? ones.

1) Netflix - The Shizzle

2) More Cowbell - Christopher Walken fans unite, and

3) Old time radio - Life of Riley. Which reminds me to go and buy some more warbonds to beat the huns.
