Apple The news just broke that Apple has rejected the official upcoming Google Voice application, and stopped distributing the third party "GV" application, an app that was previously authorized. Read on for a quick commentary, from the point of view of not an Apple or Google fangirl, but from someone who genuinely appreciates VoIP SIP (even if Google Voice itself is not VoIP, read on). For those who have read my blog over the years, would probably remember my VoIP-related rants since 2005. UPDATE: A more direct, more personal, reply from me to Apple and AT&T.

Our favorite space alien, ET, pulls out his iPhone and attempts to contact his home planet via Google VOIP (voice over inter-planetary protocol). Unfortunately, it is blocked by Apple/AT&T.

"ET phone home... no answer"

ET dies of old age and is buried in the backyard in an old Dell computer box.
