Microsoft has capitulated to a lot of annoyed and loud customers, releasing a patch for Windows Mobile that fixes the Daylight Saving Time issue. Microsoft is doing this despite the fact that it has always been the responsibility of device makers, they weren’t going to let those companies screw their customers and mess up Outlook Mobile.

To recap this sordid saga: Because the US government decided to extend Daylight Saving Time this year, lots of electronic devices would have the wrong times starting the new schedule, on March 11, and on every March 11 and October 28 through the end of time. If that doesn’t sound like a problem you’d like to have download the patch:

* Pocket PC devices (Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PCs) CAB file – download to your device, then run on the device

* Smartphone devices (Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.0 for Smartphone) CAB file – download to your device, then run on the device

* Desktop installer (Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC and Windows Mobile 2003 for Smartphone, and Windows Moblie 5.0 for Pocket PC and Windows Mobile 5.0 for Smartphone) – download to your computer, then run the program while your device is connected to your computer
