Microsoft bought SwiftKey, hope not to turn it into another Nokia

Microsoft bought SwiftKey,. I sincerely hope they don't turn it into another Nokia.

I use Swype primarily on my phone, but I am still a big fans of SwiftKey.
SwiftKey was generally known for their superb prediction for TYPING.
Although I would say Swype is superior in terms of SWIPING.

There are few reasons I really like SwiftKey eventhough I don't use it much.
i) It is FREE. Since few months ago, they changed their business model, changing from paid apps to free apps. Now they offer paid themes.
ii) There is built in stats tool that let you know how many keystrokes you have saved during the time you use SwiftKey. Their PR said they have saved trillion of keystrokes for the human being. And the stats tool is constantly improving, for showing more interesting stats
iii) They used to have very creative April's fools joke, and they really implemented the feature. SwiftKey Tilt and SwiftKey Flow Hard.
iv) They don't stop innovating. Recently they launch SwiftKey Neural, which use Neural network as the decoder.
v) They have SwiftKey greenhouse that help incubate ideas.

I still prefer to use Swype on phone, because SwiftKey flow is not accurate enough.
Another problem is how they use the prediction bar, as explained in this reddit post:

Tips me if you know any papers accepted but not listed here


Pulse news reader (the web version) is gone too!

Pulse news reader "was" the best news reader for me, I use it everyday.
I prefer pulse over flipboard, feedly and others by huge margin.
The main reason is the layout. I like the thumbnail layout with short title.
I can easily scan through all related tech news in a glimpse and only click on interesting one.
While the layout is not perfect (I have many ideas to improve it), it is still one of the best out there.

It is the same for the Android/iOS phone/tablet app.

However, LinkedIn bought Pulse and screwed it.
First, they revamp the layout on mobile devices.
The immediate result? - the Google Play store rating went down from 4.5++ to 3.0
I believe it could even score as low as 1.0 as there are so many complaints on the Google Play store reviews.
The main reason it stays at 3.0 is mainly because there were many previous rating at 5.0 but the rater didn't change their score after the new layout changes.
I can live with the layout changes on mobile, because at least the web version is still working fine, like the screenshot above.

However, until recent few days, LinkedIn is changing the web version too.
First, there is no way to get into the old layout, it keeps redirect me to LinkedIn homepage.
Second, now it shows error 404 whenever I try to access it.
I hope LinkedIn will bring back the old layout. Listen to the users.
