Redmond Sorry for Office Mobile 2010 Mix-Up

Apparently some folks were surprised last week when their copies of Office Mobile 2010 beta just kind of stopped working, although Microsoft says that it had put the cutoff date for the beta in the product's fine print. (You do read those user agreements, don't you?)

Well, apparently this little incident rankled enough users that Microsoft actually apologized for it. And while this might not be that big of a deal (and while it's technically not even an error on Microsoft's part), we still contend that it's a symptom of the greater mess that is Microsoft's mobile "strategy."
