Shoe is on the other foot now ...

During a keynote speech at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) Kevin Turner, Microsoft's chief operating officer compared the iPhone 4 to Vista:

"It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I'm okay with that."

Ouch!

Turner went on to humiliate Apple further:

"One of the things I want to make sure you know today is that you're going to be able to use a Windows Phone 7 and not have to worry about how you're holding it to make a phone call"

Yikes!
