Microsoft has been stepping up the app-development promotion pace around Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. One such initiative is Microsoft is now offering developers $100 for each Windows 8 and/or Windows Phone 8 app they write, up to a total of 10 apps per Store. I am sure such steps will help Microsoft to capture bigger tablet/smartphone market.

@Jacob: I agree and I hope others will spent just only a few minutes in looking for possible alternative schemes to suggest, instead of financial penalties which represent, really often, additional damages for endusers...

"t is the time, maybe, for a new approach to penalties; maybe they need to focus not only on finance (sooner or later endusers will pay back to vendors the amount), but - for instance - restrictions to market policies or market zone addressable in terms of location. Not to say I am right, they are only my thoughts"

Mfbertozzi, that's a good point. Financial penalties/burdens can be recovered through various sources either by collecting from end customers or dumping from their profit. So along with financial penalties, governments has to impose other restrictions like banning the product for further sale for a some duration or civil/criminal cases etc.

"well, it is an interesting analysis and honestly, I didn't think about it in my previous post; it is a fact: end users are really often impacted by the disputes among vendors and Authorities devoted to market rules and in a such way, penalties have been payed by endusers;"

Mfbertozzi, yes, vendors or service providers don't want to touch/share their profits with anybody. So they used to collect such penalties from end-users at different levels either by hiking the basic price or adding additional service charges.

@BF: great idea, it seems glasses from Google will represent the first step, in a such way, toward that direction...

Mfbertozzi, I donít think any particular issue with it. MS may end up in paying the penalty 732 Million USD and try to collect the same amount from various sources. Again the end user is going to be the sufferer.

"The biggest problem will become consumers will have to choose between Android, iOS, Windows, or another OS. Someone needs to develop a compatibility plug-in that would enable my iOS device to run Android or Windows apps. Just a dream?"

Laurie, today it may be dream but tomorrow there is no doubt that it becomes a reality. Technology is capable to realize the dreams.

I'm looking forward to the "think screen," when we'll be able to browse a screen's content by thinking. Of course that could get a little chaotic for some of us...
