Not usually given to hop on the hot-button iPhone scandal of the day, but that'll happen here from time to time. More often, what you'll see here is a stream of observations. Things that don't make sense. Ways in which Apple isn't drinking their own Kool-Aid. Signs that they're painfully behind the times in the iPhone software market, even though it's their own damned platform.
Unrelated to the conversation at hand, but it’s something I’ve seen mentioned several times, by several different people, over the past month or two. Do we know that Apple still gets any share of carrier revenue? From the original iPhone launch, I was under the impression that this revenue sharing agreement was not only unprecedented, but also contingent upon Apple’s exclusivity deal with AT&T in the US. Which has, of course, expired.
I’d certainly like to know if my understanding is wrong.
