- Apple: 'Continues to study' Google Voice apps; AT&T: We played no part - "... it appears to alter the iPhone’s distinctive user experience by replacing the iPhone’s core mobile telephone functionality and Apple user interface with its own user interface for telephone calls, text messaging and voicemail ...". So give people the choice of which experience they like better rather than dictating one and only one!
- The Google Voice app scandal: is Apple losing control over the iPhone? - "I can picture it now: Steve Jobs, sitting in a leather chair wearing a Hugh Hefner-like house robe, puffing on a pipe with his hand on his chin, looking like he’s weighing the the meaning of life."
- Amazon lowers fees on reserved EC2 instances - A great way to host without having to buy machines and deal with the associated headaches just got cheaper.
