The Downide of Your ISP Turning to Gmail

MacGod Re:Blogspam (266 comments)

Well, don't forget that they'll also be tied into their ISP more, because the Google-hosted Service is so much better than that which ISPs traditionally offer. So, basically, they're evil for charging some money for a superior service.

I'm not sure what the article thinks is the better choice-a free, crappy service? i.e the status quo?

AT&T Announces iPhone price plans

MacGod MacGod writes  |  more than 7 years ago

MacGod (320762) writes "Macworld is reporting that AT&T has announced three price plans specifically for the iPhone. In addition to selecting any of AT&T's regular price plans, iPhone customers can choose from three unlimited-data plans. The plans include 450, 900 and 1350 minutes for $60, $80 or $100 per month, respectively. In addition to the unlimited data, all plans include 200 SMS messages, unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling, and unused minutes roll-over to the next month. As expected, registration and plan selection is done through iTunes."

MacGod writes "From BBC News comes a story about a Jupiter Research survey conducted before Steve Job's anti-DRM essay, indicating that most music industry execs see DRM-free music as a way to expand the sales on digital tracks. To summarise: 54% of music execs think the current DRM is too restrictive and 62% think selling unencumbered music would be a way to boost sales. Even limiting the survey to the record labels themselves, 48% believe this. Yet, many also believe it's not going to happen without significant governmental intervention-even though most insiders think DRM is harmful, the labels are keen to stick with it.

Is this yet another sign of the typical media industry "head in the sand, refuse to change" approach, or might we be seeing the early stages or some actual change? After all, admitting you have a problem is the first step to fixing it."
