(Newser) – A standard feature of most mobile operating systems is a notification center, a centralized place users can get alerts about their applications. Microsoft's new Windows Phone 8, however, does not have the feature. Why? It's not because of any groundbreaking, new way of organizing information. "Because we ran out of time," explains a Microsoft exec, according to the Verge. He adds that feedback from developers makes clear they'd like one, so stay tuned. "I promise we're thinking very, very hard on that one."
