I wasn't aware the carriers were supposed to make money from selling the phones. The carriers sell services... which is what they charge a monthly fee for. I'm an American... so I only know subsidies. My 16GB iPhone only cost me $200 because Verizon subsidized it. Basically... Verizon then wrote a check to Apple for the remaining $450. But Verizon does that because they will make it up by me paying a monthly fee over the life of my contract... or at least that's...
Didn't the same thing happen with the iPod?
It gets especially frustrating when it's the weekend and there are no new stories to comment on...
Don't you already own Jurassic Park in a much better format than iTunes can deliver?Blu-Ray?

All they have to do is make cheaper ad-buys for clients... to undercut Google.Once again... the "race to the bottom"
How will this work exactly? If you use an app on a Samsung phone... you'll get ads served by Samsung. But if you use that same app on any other Android phone... you get ads served by Google?
