Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

I would have thought given America's size and being the centre of information technology that carriers would be offering such a service.


Note: a bit OT.

I also thought so, until two things happened, i). I wanted to buy a cheap but decent speed home net connection in the U.S. and ii). I wanted to buy a mobile (oh, sorry cell) phone in the U.S. In both cases I was laughing at first, then became a bit shocked, then after a while, just gave up searching for things that didn't exist. I mean come on, hilarious prices, plus in many cases a very low number of ISPs to choose from, also cell plans in most cases ridiculous (just see how and what they include and the associated prices, also look at roaming options and prices).

Additionally, now they're going backwards (at least from my European point of view) "introducing" traffic based capped monthly plans for broadband ;)

So yes, while in many things the U.S. is cool, broadband and cell plans and prices do not belong in that category.
