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.

I don't deny for a second that these companies do things we don't like, but nobody makes us buy their products and services. If they are a true monopoly, then that's different maybe.

No, it isn't a monopoly, but more of an oligopoly. But when most of the players are act in pretty much the same manner then you're more or less forced to be screwed over in some form.

The choice you get is which way you get screwed and by whom.
