Are Microsoft Giving Up?.

Following on yesterdays post where I talk about testing the new version of software for Apple’s iPhone, I’ve also read that Microsoft are to stop (or have already stopped) selling their Lumia range of mobile phones. There are also reports that they will not update their fitness device, the Microsoft Band, either. Both of these were technologies I’ve started (in the case of Windows 10 Mobile) or intend to start developing for. Now that they, or part of the ecosystem, will not be updated, is there any point?

I made the switch to developing using Microsoft technologies, i.e. the .Net framework, a little over a year ago as I had used it in the past and thought it was a good opportunity to get back into it. Maybe I should of stuck to what I was using instead (PHP/MySQL).
