There’s been a fair bit of confusion regarding the Windows/Home button on the Lumia 925, and whether it can act as a notification light or not.

Weekend Read: Business Insider – “Maybe there’s hope for Microsoft yet”

When the story of talks between Microsoft and Nokia fell through I felt something was off, especially since Microsoft didn’t seem to gain anything from purchasing a company that was already 100% committed to their platform (and […]
