Telecoms fight for the right to party with iPhone 3G - Page 2

post #41 of 44
Okay, apologies, rush of blood to the head. I think when Apple went from PPC to Intel there was a big transition and a big shift in the audience and interest in the Mac.

Apple getting to bed with the mobile telecommunications industry is an even bigger jump, in my view.

I just don't know whether us "veterans" (I mean, of a few years... Melgross will probably take things back a century ) ...are really exposed and aware of the challenges and mistrust a lot of us have of the big network providers.

I mean, if we are so dependent on the network for all our needs, then these telcos have a big hold over us as well.

I'm not going to start a crusade, because there's obviously more important things in life.

I just, on a personal level, would like to know *how* we are going to handle this shift in the Apple ecosystem.

Steve, he knows it has been a big jump, and IMO he seems to have gone through a lot, I mean, tons, to get where Apple is today.

From a retail perspective, let's face the facts - AT&T, O2, CarphoneWarehouse, Rogers... it's a heck of a lot different from Apple Store retail. What does this mean???

Apropos, an interesting article by Laura Holson of the New York Times:

I have always found that with roughlydrafted, you need to read beyond the bias.
I think the bias is quite correct personally, but it can make it difficult to cull the information from the rant.

Howerver, having saif that

Let me say this

I love roughly drafted, there is real tech insight, and historical insight.

along with historical revisionism and technical bias

It is what BLOGGING is all about

As I posted earlier Daniel Pilger or whatever his name is today, got his head handed to him by iLounge for posting totally inaccurate articles as fact, and then trying to defend once iLounge pointed them out. As it stands AI is seen as little more than a gathering of Apple zealots who seem to think Steve Jobs is their best friend. While this is not completely true, this opinion does have its merits.
