I have always found it so interesting that the Apple Haters pick non-issues to hate on. Every other phone/device manufacture puts a different connect on just about every device and that is cool, but Apple talks about changing their gaint connect (30pin) that only uses 4pin, and well now they are the devil. only interested in stealing your money. Please!
"it is a pretty big assumption to think that all of viacom can communicate like the borg. what one part of the company is doing (with the legal advice it has gotten) may not be the same as other parts of the very huge company. attempting to paint viacom and its thousands of employees being on the same scale as youtube and its (at the time) handful of employees is a laughable concept. i would say it smacks of desperation, knowing that you tube is very likely to get a legal reaming here very soon."
So what your saying is that it is to assume a huge company with large amounts of resources could not police its own content, but a small company with few resources should be able to. It seems that Viacom should be able to accomplish what it is sueing other to do in similar circumstances.
LOL, I swear the same troll picks different things to lie about every article. There was no IP to try and hammer Mike about so he jumps on timeliness. No really Google has just released today a new and improved web app for Google Voice, they did however announce today's release yesterday. AC you are a genius, you even have me trying to correct you. LOL
You have made Mike's point for him. He did not say it was impossible to get connected. He said that in many places there are only two choices, which is not significant competition, and wireless does not count because in most carrier TOS you are not allowed to tether other devices to it.
Quite a few other countries have better internet options in far more places than the US, and that is the point, Verizon put out this propaganda crap claiming the US is number one, but in fact we are not even close.
