PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is fun. The number one iOS carrier duking it out with the company behind the world's most popular smartphone operating system. Last month, Google's lead for the Android Open Source Project, Jean-Baptiste Queru, more or less blamed carriers (see comments) for Android's upgrade woes. Yesterday, AT&T's CEO Randall Stephenson retaliated, blaming Google for the delays. And yes, Google already responded to that, too.

You're right, they don't make us do anything. We sign the contracts and expect them to live up to their end and provide a quality level of service for the premium we agree to pay. The problem is that once we sign that contract, they invariably change the terms to maximize their profits without redress, whereas if we default on our end we are charged hefty fees and sued if we don't pay up. And the worst part is, our wonderfully capitalistic government turns a blind eye.
