Apple The news just broke that Apple has rejected the official upcoming Google Voice application, and stopped distributing the third party "GV" application, an app that was previously authorized. Read on for a quick commentary, from the point of view of not an Apple or Google fangirl, but from someone who genuinely appreciates VoIP SIP (even if Google Voice itself is not VoIP, read on). For those who have read my blog over the years, would probably remember my VoIP-related rants since 2005. UPDATE: A more direct, more personal, reply from me to Apple and AT&T.

VoIP and SIP (any voice over a network basically), especially over any free WiFi network, SERIOUSLY and FUNDAMENTALLY threatens the current mobile operator status quo and their license to print money. As Apple currently relies on those operators the this was always going to get rejected.

It's just a matter of time though.
