Apple When Steve Jobs mentioned a few weeks ago that there will be "some sort of app development" for the iPhone, everyone assumed he meant widgets. Widgets are less powerful than native applications, and depending on the underlying OS hooks offered, they can be even less powerful than J2ME apps. But when Jobs came out today to outright sell us Web 2.0 and said that "no SDK required", I felt cheated.

The telecom industry cares very much about your VOIP needs. They care about suppressing them.

What makes the carriers in the US so different from the ones in Europe? Here VoIP on your mobile is available, functional and no carrier has ever done anything to actively try to stop it. They'll just charge you for the bandwidth and be happy.

Well my T-Mobile internet contract states that i am NOT Allowed to use my nokia E61 for VOIP using the data connection (Not the wifi connection but the 3G connection)

Im in the UK. I thought all providers were against data being used for VOIP on mobile phones.

"Greed" is the answer to your question. Why not rip everyone off and make tons of money? If people keep paying me, screw them, right?

"The American Way" includes a strong drive for the acquisition of wealth. Morality, ethics, and shared wealth get in the way of being the best at business.
