Windows Phone UK explains history of Tiles and shows off what James Corden has pinned

Windows Phone UK has uploaded a number of new videos on its YouTube account. The first being a history on how tiles have evolved, from roof tiles to the tiles in the bathroom that have no choice but put up with awful shower karaoke. Of course, Windows Phone owners know Live Tiles as a useful way to provide information to the smartphone user without requiring to fire up any apps. 

It's well worth checking out for some light humour on how tiles have evolved and how Microsoft is taking the concept further with its Windows family of products. Another video worth viewing (as it's related) is a short, but sweet look at which apps James Corden has pinned to his start screen. There's no Windows Phone Central Live Tile, but we'll let him off... for now.
