Internet & Networking Well, this is interesting. As some rumours already suggested, Google and Verizon have released a joint proposal for a legislative framework regarding net neutrality. This being Google and all, some of you may expect this to be all flower-farting unicorns darting across rainbows, but sadly, that's not the case. This proposal? Well, it's not good.

Keep praising Google and Verizon while denigrating Apple and AT&T.

I don't see a Tiered proposal from A & A, do you?

Schmidt has been slime since his SUN Microsystems days, to Novell and now at Google.

Apple and ATT already have you paying at both ends of the pipe. Neutrality of the data in between benefits them just as a tiered strategy benefits Google/Verison. They're all money grubbing bastard corporations in the end, the real product is profit marges, services/products are just the tool used to harvest wallets.

Oh yeah,the article is just filled to the brim with praise for Google and Verizon:

Google and Verizon pretty much butcher the concept of the internet... Google and Verizon pull a major testicle move by slicing up the internet purely based on access method... Yeah, this is pretty bad and completely arbitrary... This Additional Online Services thing is basically a major cop-out on Google's part...

But hey, don't let reality get in the way of your need to believe that everything revolves around Apple.

I don't see a Tiered proposal from A & A, do you?

AHAHAHAHahahahahaha, and you seriously believe AT&T isn't planning to do the exact same thing? Verizon just beat them to it (nothing new there).
