Editorial I think I'd like to start an internet movement. Due to Apple's recent actions regarding the Google Voice app, I intend to criticize Apple every day at OSNews for 1984 days, or until they perform a very subtle and simple act of contrition. I'd like to enlist the help of every tech journalist, blogger, twitterer, Facebook denizen, and person who ever talks to another person. I'm that girl in the running shorts with the hammer, people! I'm throwing the hammer at the big creepy guy on the screen! We don't have to be slaves anymore! Read on for the full manifesto.

You're absolutely right, and I'm ashamed that I didn't mention this opportunity that Apple has to disrupt mobile carriers' power worldwide. Here's the paragraph I added to my manifesto:

And, as a reader so astutely pointed out, this isn't, of course just about AT&T. Right now, AT&T is the most influential carrier, but as the iPhone moves across the globe, Apple has a chance to set the carriers straight all over the place. They should make an example of AT&T and put the world's other carriers on notice.


And as for "deliberately tossing complaints around," it's not like I'm going to have to bend over backward to find things to complain about. Even for a die-hard Apple fan like me, there's a lot to talk about. But just like I don't believe we should get bored with the protests in Iran and stop talking about them, I think that Apple will be less likely to disrespect its customers if we show determination not to let the issue drop.
