Hello? AT&T? Anybody home?
Whoops. I guess the cat's out of the bag and AT&T has finally seen the writing on the wall. See here. These AT&T chumps actually believed that Apple was all about working with them and helping them out. They thought Steve was going to happily embrace their stone age technology and tango with them for life. Until yesterday, when they thought, uh oh. Maybe Apple's fucking us here with these digital song and ring tone downloads. That's our thing, right?
Um, no. Sorry, buttheads. That's Apple's thing, and guess what? It's just the tip of the iceberg. The real story is that you were just the stepping stone to VoIP. Steve's going to leapfrog you like the telecommunications industry leapfrogged AOL. People are soon going to be using their iPhones to make unlimited free phone calls to everyone everywhere, and you're going to be left holding the bag. And the even bigger story is that you're like the mentally-disabled neighbor that Steve wanted to experiment with. You're just the first of many. Next up are the music companies. Steve's going to cut out those middlemen and let bands deal directly with iTunes. That's the plan. It's taking a little longer than expected, but it's coming, bros. It's coming.
