Vole has been marketing Windows® 8 Live Tiles® as the latest and
greatest since sliced bread (as usual).
Unfortunately *this Chinese video* of my current Tablet proves that Live
Tiles® are nothing but baaad copycat from Google Android ICS.
Microsoft® INNOVA~1® at its best :-D (evil laughter)
On Android ICS they are simply widgets, which show the latest updates of
your email and social media, or whatever widget you place on one of the
preferred multiple "virtual desktops". You simply have the ability to
"browse" trough the history, by tipping the widgets and scrolling down
(like in a web-browser).
Windows® 8 Live Tiles® on the other had are showing a "history" of the
most recent updates in a "interactive" manner. Meaning text is scrolled
continually on multiple Tiles®. At first this seems quite funny and
sexy, but trust me, it gets on your nerves within 15 minutes.
Poor Vole, desperately trying to catch up with GNU/Linux desktop and
Android and *miserably* failing, by providing the most user hostile and
butt ugly user environment Ever!
