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.

apple is king of monopoly not only in software but in hardware also. Microsoft is nothing compared to apple in this regard. You can always do more with WM6 phone than iphone or with zune than ipod...
Should we force ipods to include ballot about compititive zune or sandisk players.
Should we force mac to have ballot screen about other browsers available(if any)..
Should we force iphone to have ballot about symbion or wm6..
Mocrosoft bashers and linux lovers on this forum, can you please clarify your stand about 'top to bottom' monopolostic nature of apple...
(don't give me answer that apple have 10% marketshare and hence no monopoly by definition
