OMG That Sucks! for Microsoft and Samsung

It seems the Microsoft forgot to test a segment of the Windows Phone 7 hardware.  Many Samsung phones are having issues with the latest updates pushed from MS.  Users are reporting phones are unusable after the updates have run.

Microsoft said a "technical issue" is to blame for the recent Windows Phone 7 software update problems that have bricked about 10 percent of devices trying to upgrade. The update snafu mostly appears to be affecting Samsung devices. Microsoft hasn't said what, specifically, caused the problems, but it has stopped upgrades to Samsung handsets as a precaution. Updates are continuingnormally for non-Samsung phones.
