My ISP already does this and it is very frustrating. When I stopped sending them checks, they cut my download speed to 0 - Zero! They didn't allow any upload speeds at all. After an angry call with the help desk, I agreed to write them a check on a monthly basis. They now allow me to download and upload from any website. Anyway, I contacted my representative about this. To think that the ISP would stop letting me use their service, just because I stopped paying for it. The monopolies will rule the world!

But what will it really take to beat or match the iPhone (single page), and does Android or any other mobile OS have the right stuff? There's a lot more to the answer than is usually discussed. This article takes a look at the strengths that may allow Droid and Android 2.0 to provide strong competition to devices like the iPhone and the Blackberry, as well as the obstacles it continues to face that could inhibit adoption."

Comment etymology (Score 1) 613
