Microsoft's Zune Misstep Marks the Gadget Road Not Taken

,----[ Quote ]
| The Zune's failure sent the company down a 
| very different path than Apple's. Jobs & Co. 
| were able to use the iPod's success to launch 
| the iPhone, and now the iPad. Microsoft's 
| mobile OS has struggled against the mobile 
| operating system Apple uses, probably because 
| Redmond never had a cell phone of its own to 
| carry Windows Mobile as a follow-on product 
| to the Zune.

Microsoft Kills Windows Phone 7's Series

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft is not very confident about the 
| coolness of the name of its newest operating 
| system for mobile phones named Windows Phone 
| 7 Series. The coolest name would have been 
| WP7S! But Microsoft has decided to chop the 
| word 'series' from the 'Windows Phone 7 
| Series'. The phone will now be called Windows 
| Phone 7.

,----[ Quote ]
| According to a post on the Zune Forums, owners
| of the Zune Pass are having a bit of trouble
| accessing the music they're paying for with
| their subscription, as first reported by
| Engadget. In less than two weeks, the thread
| in question has passed 50 replies as users
| complain and list what they can no longer
| access: specific songs, entire albums, or even
| everything produced by an artist.
