Apple Thumbs Its Nose at Carriers By Launching iMessage Without Warning

I say, "it's about damn time!" I've always found it absurd that cellphone companies charge more for SMS - at least when the customer is paying for data. It's goddamned data! Where do they get off doing this bullshit? Well, because they know we have no choice. I'm glad Apple is figuring out a way around it. I really hope Google and Microsoft jump on this bandwagon - or that some new standard is set up so we can break free of this tyranny!

Too much outrage for a few dollar a month fee? Sorry. Sometimes I just can't help myself.
