Android DOES support dual-SIM phones, so don't place the blame there. Just Google it, you'll find Android-based dual-SIM phones. Just not sold by AT&T, or TMobile.

I'm not sure why AT&T doesn't carry any, and maybe they soon will, now that they're using Enterproid. There's no reason to say that your two SIM cards won't both be locked to AT&T. You pay for two plans, but only carry one phone. Seems like a win for them.

It may have been the intent to have separate lines for Clear customers, but I know that wasn't the case at the Albany, NY airport. There, Clear customers just got the skip to the front of the line, just like airline / airport workers. They still went through the same check lines as everybody else; just didn't need to wait to show their ID.


+ - Steve Jobs: Lets abolish DRM

Submitted by Arjun Ravi Narayan
Arjun Ravi Narayan writes: Steve Jobs writes an open letter talking about DRM, music and how DRM has no effect really on piracy. He talks about the problems that DRM entails to consumers, and explains how he dislikes DRM (and that he would support removing DRM from the iTunes store 'in a heartbeat') and that the only reason it is there is because of the 'Big Four' cartel (Sony BMG, Universal, Warner and EMI). He also talks about opposition to DRM stemming from European countries (starting with Norway as reported here. Is this the beginning of the end for DRM? Will the music industry finally wake up to the problems of DRM?
