PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Are Microsoft, Apple and Google quietly preparing for war with mobile carriers? I think so. With all the advancements in mobile phones in the past 10 years, the part that’s been woefully slow to advance is the phone part. Making calls, placing calls, searching for signal and scrimping minutes hasn’t changed much since the phone came out, because carriers have little motivation for innovation.

Bringing down the industries one at a time, music, movies and telco. I am sure others are on the "hit list" too.

I guess what it means is, if you are a service company, then don't be evil :-) Give great service at competitive rates and Apple, Google, MS and others might leave you alone.

I think for years these organisations have gotten away with murder.

Having said that, I am sure we will replace one crime with another :-)
