I’m still completely confused as to why anyone would lock themselves into a 2 year contract with a phone that doesn’t run the lastest version of the operating system available, and won’t until “sometime later this year”.

MG Siegler, on why he hates Google/Android:

Thanks to the Google/Verizon alliance on the matter, the FCC decided the compromised vision of Net Neutrality was just fine also. To be clear: Net Neutrality was thrown out in the wireless space because Google sided with Verizon’s ridiculous and horribly conflicted stance on the matter.

It’s funny because I’d actually forgotten that this had happened. I also learned a few things about the Nexus One program. Well written and should be read (and taken with grains of salt, if you need to) by anyone with a passing interest in the mobile market these days.

Marco Arment, in a short essential read on platforms and fanboys:

When people get defensive over their choices that you inadvertently cast doubt upon, and they don’t want to admit (to themselves or anyone else) that they made the wrong decisions, they will often attempt to convince themselves (and possibly everyone else) that your opinions are invalid by discrediting you.

Bingo.

How stupid do you have to be to add GPS capability to your tablet, only to kill any practical usage of that GPS by designing your tablet in a way that you can almost never get a GPS signal? Probably about as dumb as you’d have to be to purchase a Transformer Prime.

Louis CK, on his newly released $5 ($5!) special:

I’d just like you to consider this: I made this video extremely easy to use against well-informed advice. I was told that it would be easier to torrent the way I made it, but I chose to do it this way anyway, because I want it to be easy for people to watch and enjoy this video in any way they want without “corporate” restrictions.

This man may be the funniest comedian working today, and that he is raging against the corporate machine and doing things his way just endears me to him more. It’s $5, DRM-free, and in a portable format. While I haven’t yet seen it, I’m betting it’s going to be one of the best $5 you spend this month. So do it. Go, now.

Ellen Campesinos, on the plight of the travelling musician who tries to get laid:

I’m lucky enough to be in a job where I get to tour the world and meet interesting people, but in my experience, musicians — especially females — get a lot less then you’d imagine.

It’s a quick, smart and funny read. It’s also pretty insightful into a world I know little about and would like to know more of. And I’m not referring to female eroticism… or am I?
