Did you just see $500 million go up in smoke? Thanks to a massive data wipeout that left thousands of customers without their personal information, Danger Inc., a company Microsoft bought for about half a billion dollars last year is fast becoming worthless. T-Mobile USA, its biggest champion (and arguably its biggest customer), is letting people ditch their devices and contracts. Oops!

  1. Anybody trust Microsoft in their cars? Watch out for the real world blue screen of death.

    I guess the name “Danger Inc” said it all…what a bummer…

  3. Reflect upon the size and breadth of the lawsuit that will be filed by T-Mobile against Microsoft – for loss of income, loss of customers, loss of reputation.

  4. T Mobile is in troubles, if anything the help from Germany is most needed now.
    Microsoft doesn’t care 500 millions , its another competing platform they killed.
    OBTW , there are many smart designers and developers from the DANGER team who can help the Big Micro on their long troubled Mobile 7 project now.

  5. Speaking of which , these smart DANGER guys must be busy backing up the data :-) now that the thing went kaput they can teach Microsoft the fine art of walking in the clouds. :-)

    Is it just me, or does it seem a bit lame that Microsoft has made a point of saying “it was Danger software that failed”. Come on, Microsoft bought Danger 17 months ago! 17 months seems like enough time that Microsoft should take full responsibility.
