Devs won't make WIndows Phone apps because nobody uses Windows Phone.

If you read the comments above you can figure out who I'm talking about.
In short:
Bayesian uses what is called Bayes' Theorem to determine statistical probabilities and outcomes. It's hard to explain if you don't have a good grasp of math, but you can sum it up as "what sounds most likely, is most probable" This is actually a part of Bayes' formula, called the "likelihood function"; there are also other factors but this is (often) the most important part
Bayesian statistics operates a lot with the notion that all statistics and probabilities are entirely subjective, and the result of Bayesian statistics is a probability distribution, where a Frequentist answer is true or false.
A Frequentist concludes everything based on sample size (or frequency of data) Chisquared tests are a statistical calculation in the frequentist form.
The joke is, that the machine says yes, and therefore there is a small, yet not infinitesimal probability, that the sun has actually exploded (more precisely 1/36, as that's the chance of rolling two sixes)
convert that to decimals and you get 0.027 = 2.7 %
When frequnetists are given a probability, they usually put it up against a 5percent margin of error (called "significance test" and is not fixed at 5 percent, but this is the usual value). This is a bit longer subject, but in short it means that since there's less than 5 % difference between expected data and observed data, then the two must be of same source and not just the randomness of data. In our example, since the chance of rolling two sixes are smaller than 5 %, he concludes the sun has exploded.
While the Bayesian statistician says "What's most likely?"  the sun probably didn't just explode for no apparent reason.
... That was a bit longer than I intended, but I hope i helped somewhat.
