So I read this article on The Verge and I thought I should check out this #windowsrage hash tag that seems to be getting everyone all atwitter. It would seem that Windows Phone decided to kick off a poorly thought out #droidrage marketing scheme:

This was promptly met with outrage and posts like this:
