There's no argument that the batteries are getting better. They're just 
getting better slow, too slow, waaay too slow. And then, even if you get 
the batteries to be able to spit out a convenient amount of power for a 
sufficiently long amount of time, you've got this little problem called 
heat calling in. Sure enough my cell phone's battery lasts a good two 
weeks, but then all I do with it is use it a very nice colour screen 
polyphonic alarm clock. Last time I tried to drag it onto the Web to see 
some election results (over GPRS), a fair quarter of it got dragged out 
of that same battery. It's not that simple.
