T-Mobile Content Features Emperor's New Clothes

Yesterday, Techdirt “un-covered” the story of the German motorist who was carnally distracted by a hitch-hiker. Today, things seem to be cooling off in Germany, since the raciest news was T-Mobile’s launch of erotic MMS content, in video clips of up to 15 seconds. The premium MMS service will also include Sports, Film, and music content. On a point of order, it should not be called MMS. Video content aggregated and delivered by the carrier to the subscriber is a video service. ‘Messaging’ implies content sent between subscribers. In completely unrelated news, T-Mobile USA announced the addition of Hotspots in 115 additional Starbucks in Arizona, Minnesota and Nevada. No word yet on whether there will be an “erotic” element to that service.
