An Unfortunate iChoice
But, even if I wanted all the gadgetry of the iPhone, I wouldn't purchase one. Why? Principle. Conviction. AT&T.
While not surprising, I find it sad that so many who advocate for net neutrality, changes in copyright law and against infringements on freedoms such as with warrantless wiretapping, and who are clearly aware of AT&T's history, are found standing in line for Jobs' latest rather than very publicly boycotting this product as soon as it was announced that AT&T would be the sole service provider (As soon as AT&T bought out Cingular, I switched to T-Mobile).
But, as with our politicians, convictions are exercised only when convenient.
