Just finished reading Tim Wu's "The Master Switch." It really shows the evil that is AT&T, with tons of historical perspective. It is a must read for anyone interested in Telecom issues.
Tomorrow is predicted to be the announcement of the iPhone's arrival on Verizon. In keeping with "The Master Switch" subject, if it finally happens, and it looks like it will, this is a huge blow to AT&T. It will represent the first time in history that AT&T has lost a monopoly without a court order forcing them to do so. It isn't quite the beginning of the end for AT&T, but it is a huge set back for them.
What the heck, yeah, it is the beginning of the end for AT&T.
I'll be commenting more once I find out the particulars tomorrow. In the meantime, be sure to check out this book:
