| The date bug which is interfering with Aussie 
| point of sale transactions has spread to some 
| Windows mobile phones.
| The glitch means that text messages received 
| since New Year's Eve will appear with a 2016 
| date. Card scanners in thousands of Australian 
| shops have also been hit, as we reported 
| yesterday. Bank of Queensland systems, believing 
| it was 2016, rejected most payment cards because 
| they'd passed their expiry date.



10 Things Microsoft Did Wrong in 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| News Analysis: Microsoft has had an up and
| down kind of year. The company released
| Windows 7, but it also was forced to lay

| online efforts, but failed to improve
| Windows Mobile. We take a look at those
| things the company did wrong in 2009.


The Sad Decline of Windows Mobile

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft has been plugging away at the
| mobile computing market for almost as long
| as Windows has been around. I'm thinking
| of products like Windows for Pen
| Computing, or the original Windows CE for
| handheld devices. At best, you could say
| that the consumers were willing but the
| platforms were weak.

| Microsoft is at risk of falling into last
| place in mobile phones if it doesn't do
| something about it. So what's the one
| strength Microsoft can bring to the table?

| They're one of the factors that has made
| Microsoft a success on desktops, and it
| might well play in the mobile space.

| Linux-based mobile operating systems had
