CTIA: Picking on Verizon

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 10:29 AM

LOS ANGELES -- Walt Mossberg didn't stop at calling Verizon Wireless a Soviet ministry (see item below).

He criticized the new Verizon Wireless Chocolate phone because he was unable to properly load MP3s he already owned from a computer to the device. Although the songs made it onto the device, they weren't readily identifiable by artist or by title.

Verizon's Lowell McAdam said that's why it's so important to agree on standards across the industry

Mossberg shot back, sarcastically saying that MP3 is a fairly common standard.

Touche.
