History of imitation and self-delusion: more info about Push Notifications in Windows Phone 7

While admitting that push notifications is nothing new, Microsoft employee Yochay Kiriaty is totally lying to himself (and to the world) by claiming that implementation of Push Notifications in Windows Phone 7 has anything new:

The concept of push notifications (PN) is not new and is used by others in the industry. With that said, the Microsoft PN (MPN) service includes a cool twist that gives developers the power to create the impression that their application is always connected by displaying relevant information even while not running through the Live Tile displayed on the Start Screen.

Commentary: in the end it’s OK that Microsoft is imitating market leader (iPhone), but at least they should stop BS-ing public about “cool twists” – as if they have anything new in Windows Phone 7. After all iPhone has copy and paste and Windows Phone 7 has no copy and paste… so maybe instead of stupid talk about “cool twist” in push notification – a ripoff from iPhone – Microsoft employees could roll up sleeves and implement copy and paste on time for launch of Windows Phone 7…
