    You mean I’m not the last Windows phone user?

    EDIT – I should have know as I never use the poop emoji…

      Cortana reads it aloud as “pile of feces” in my car. This revelation from a few years ago lead to battles with my sister where dozens of poop emojis were regularly flung my way. Sometimes I fought back, the effect wasn’t the same with her setup, but the consequences have stuck with me to this day.

      I have moved to Android as my main phone (calling, messages, internet and alarm), while I keep WP around for apps.

      Sometimes, the truth can be stranger than fiction. I just wish I had snagged one of these [url=https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/hp-elite-x3-bundle/8wr4klx6m5gt/GQTF?activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab<]bad boys[/url<] when I had the chance.
