AT&T Next is a poorly devised scam

by: Nate SwannerJuly 16, 2013
This is another instance in a long line of carriers’ acting as though mobile devices are theirs to dole out at their whim, on their terms. Rather than offering something fair, they're preying on our impatience as consumers.

Apple’s iPhone: domestic staple, potential international failure

by: Nate SwannerJuly 15, 2013
If Apple wants the continued support of carriers, they’ll probably have to soften their stance in regard to the iPhone. It’s the only device Apple requires support with, and the growing Android ecosystem is a large enough hurdle without having carrier roadblocks in addition.
