Here’s his recent post to the SMS and MOM lists:

Sample scripts presented during the Scripting Week 3 webcast series on TechNet.
I talked about this recently (http://www.myitforum.com/blog/rtrent/archive/2005/10/18/16016.aspx) and was excited about receiving it. After testing it for a few days, it simply doesn’t work right. Every time you push the phone into the case, the buttons on the left side of phone are pushed “on”. I simply can’t use this case if inserting the phone makes the PDA come on and waste battery. I don’t recommend this case.
Another thing that bugs me about the case is that it is a “side-fit” — i.e., you have to carry it on your belt sideways. That can be tough to handle riding in a car that has an arm rest. The “easy access” marketing doesn’t really make the phone any easier to retrieve.
