Verizon CFO? Idiot??

I was reading the link and I just don't understand this guy.

"The carrier stopped offering unlimited data to new customers last year, due to growing smartphone usage clogging the carrier’s pipelines"
So now we are going to share plans so more things can get on one account. Gonna get worse cause of this, At least this is what I see.


"Unlimited data customers are flocking to Share Everything"
Sure they are, I bet this is a big fat lie. Next he'll be telling us we are begging for higher bills cause we feel like we aren't paying enough for service.


"Unlimited is just a word, it doesn’t really mean anything"
Unlimited means something, Meaning no limit

Wireless Charging

Bring it on but if anyone thinks Apple will back the Qi standard should fund my bridge in Alaska...oh wait, there actually is a bridge in Alaska that goes nowhere.

iOS6 Map Debacle

Would Jobs have released it if it wasn't perfect? Is Apple's decline starting? In terms of software, they seem to be pulling a Microsoft (i.e. the first service pack will fix that).

How long until they start accepting the same slipping standard for new hardware designs? I guess there's already been "antenna" gate but I don't think Apple ever fully acknolwedged there was a problem. They offered cases but wasn't that only to help those who found it more comfortable to hold it the wrong way (according to Apple)?

The map issue reminds me of Gung Ho when (I think) Michael Keaton's character says, "That's a dealer's problem. Cars can't be perfect!"

I think Steve is rolling.
