In the days of yore, before the advent of the iPhone or even iTunes, iCared less about having to morph the English language to accommodate an un-capitalized letter beginning a proper noun. Now I’m almost daily forced to wrestle with the spell check, all because some hotshots over at Apple Computer thought that it was chick to put the small letter I in front of every new product. And it’s all Microsoft’s fault for dropping the ball on world software domination. Now here they come, hat in hand, begging us to adopt Windows Phone 8. Why? Well it’s not iOS or Android, good enough for me! Check out these 4 must-download Windows Phone apps.

Baconit empowers you to help set the trends of the day. You will be able to vote at reddit.com on which of their topics and stories are of the most importance. It’s almost like being on the Nielsen team. You are able to post your own content to the reddit site for the consideration of the masses. Though the app is not formally associated with reddit, its smooth integration with it and Windows Phone may make you forget that little detail. At ‘press time’, only one language, English, is supported.
