1. What does programming language have to do with how fast you can 
update your application?
2. Web apps also die fast as well, firefox followed chrome because 
chrome was gaining more popularity faster, not because chrome was 
'right'. (See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GT5fUcMUfYg )
3. The global menu is not going anywhere?
4. Heard of alphas and betas + virtualbox?
