Steve Jobs addresses new AT&T/iPhone controver

destinyland writes "Working Assets is calling for a boycott of the iPhone. Locking all iPhones to AT&T is unnecessary, they argue, and AT&T is "a corporation whose practices seem to run counter to everything Apple stands for..." (They specify AT&T's stand on net neutrality, warrantless wiretapping, and their handing over of customer records to the NSA.) This article says Steve Jobs was asked specifically about the AT&T lock-in Thursday, and he responded that AT&T's GSM network makes the iPhone a "world phone". But asked point-blank about whether other U.S. carriers would service the iPhone — he didn't answer."
