Google Surprising it is not, but unfortunate it remains. Carriers in the United States have started working together with Google to block tethering applications in the Android Market from running on certain Android devices. While this pretty much seems like a US-only thing, it's still bad.

Oh, man enjoy that while you can, before they become AT&T-mobile...

I've let my Verizon contract expire, especially since there's no 4G in my area and thus no incentive for me to get a new phone. But I'm thinking my choices will be so limited that my leverage in doing so may be limited.

Mobile won't even be in the name. It will be AT&T Wireless.

Don't remind me. I'm not sure what I will do when that happens; I can try Virgin Mobile -- they have an amazing $25/month unlimited data plan -- but they are Sprint which has even less coverage than T-mo. *sigh*
