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.

The fact reasonable smart phones where not available or at least not widely advertised or supported by cell phone service providers in the US does not really make Apple's iPhone revolutionary or pivotal point in the history of mobile communication.

It actually kindda drives me nuts when I hear comments that my pre-iPhone system is iPhone like device. It's like saying Ford Model T was piggy backing on the momentum of vehicle mass production ideas driving (original) VW Bug. This annoying hype and even some parts of this article show, how great of a marketing job has Apple done and that they may even succeed rewriting the history: "Account of the world according to Apple".
