If you have a Windows phone, you can take goodbye from Uber

Uber is the most important ride-sharing service across the globe, but it does not seem to work on Windows phones anymore.

The destiny of smartphones that are using a Microsoft platform seems to be sealed. It tends to be impossible to recommend such a device, no matter how inexpensive or skillful it is to capture the photo.

But that did not prevent Microsoft from aggressively promoting the new operating system, including giving users the possibility to free update to Windows 10 if they had a valid Windows 7 or Windows 8 / 8.1 license.

Almost four years later, and after successive revisions that significantly improved its functionality, Windows 10 managed to equalize Windows 7 in terms of market share, but not necessarily because it would be much better than it.
