April fools. We’re writing this story for one reason: to get all of our awesome loyal fans to stop tipping us on Instagram becoming available for Windows Phone. News flash: it’s not.

It’s now available for pre-order in India through Flipkart for Rs.10499. Yesterday we showed you guys and gals factory unlocked 520s popping up on eBay here in the U.S. for $240.

Domino’s Pizza updates their UK app for Windows Phone 8, but still no love for the US

Daniel Rubino 57

We get some criticism from people for liking Domino’s Pizza (because we live in New York) but let’s be clear: Domino’s is pretty delicious and serves a roll in our culinary selection on occasion. It’s like what Taco Bell is to Mexican food—it’s not the same or better, just different. So with that preamble, we’re excited and miffed to see the official Domino’s app get updated for Windows...
