PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Yesterday we ran an editorial about Microsoft's failing policies in the mobile space, and today, we have an assorted collection of stories that only strengthen this perception. The upcoming Marketplace for Windows Mobile has a number of rigorous restrictions, the Zune lives in a bubble of its own, and free applications for the Zune come with full-screen video advertisements. There are also a few things Microsoft seems to be doing right, however. Instant update: Another Windows-based mobile phone platform. I actually want that one, though.

"Standby time -- about 5 days"

I doubt my regular cell phone could last that long without making or receiving any calls.

Then you have a pretty bad phone. A standby of over a week is nothing uncommon.

Maybe I do. ;)

I do know that it really sucks the power down when it starts having to search for a signal.
