Apparently There Will Be No More Mobile Innovating At Microsoft

Apparently there will be no more mobile innovation at Microsoft. Well, at least that’s the impression you get if you look at the domain names that Microsoft did not renew. Microsoft, obviously on purpose, has chosen not to renew this group of domain names, as they will soon be available for anyone to register:

When you look up each of the domain names, they have not been renewed (they are set to expire on September 25, 2013), according to the whois record:

Whois Server Version 2.0
