I can't believe how much control people give up to Google, Microsoft, and Apple in order to use their mobile operating systems.

Every year, mobile devices become closer and closer techically to laptop and desktop computers, and yet people pay for less and less control over their device.

I wonder if I will ever see a mobile phone that allows me to install a new operating system onto it without the use of a separate computer. ;)

EDIT: This post seemed to be relative to both the story and your comment when I wrote it, but now that I read it again it does seem a little tangential. I'm sorry. ;)
