With Bad Connection: Inside the iPhone Network Meltdown, Wired Magazine takes a look at the love-hate relationship between Apple and AT&T. Well, maybe like-hate would be a better term. There’s so much here I wouldn’t even know where to begin quoting, but if you are at all interested in how we got to the current situation with the iPhone and AT&T, I suggest taking a look.
Much of this was suspected, but it’s outlined here in a way I never saw before. I think there’s plenty of mistakes made on both sides. I applaud the idea of pushing the cell phone companies out of their locked in phone software, but I wonder if maybe Apple pushed AT&T’s network farther and faster than it could feasibly go.
