PC "went" there when Ricochet were working no? If you believe it we were also on the moon a couple of times. To go there again wouldn´t exactly be "going where no man have been before".

And besides: This has to be something also non-americans can use for no other reason that I will be major pissed if it isn´t.

Exactly! No way could Apple provide such a service. ATT's entire company is devoted to such a service.
