"Smooth as butter". What normal person uses such a phrase? Only users of Windows Phones, it seems – or people who claim to be users of Windows Phones online.
Far be it from us to suggest that any of IT’s illustrious companies would ever even think of stooping so low as to engage in an astro-turfing campaign, but to Backbytes, there’s something distinctly "fishy" about many of the pro-Windows Phone comments that always seem to appear soon after a Windows Phone-related article is published, all seemingly "singing" from the same cliché sheet.
Or maybe it’s just an American thing? To be fair, though, ‘smooth as lard’ just doesn’t really work as a superlative.
