Ahhhh sounds like AT&T is steadily making ridiculous amounts of money
Now how about kicking some of that back to the customers in the form of lower prices
News: In case you were wondering, that's a new company record for the amount of iPhones activated in a single quarter.
Will this lead to a new company record for dropped-calls?
SPAM-posters beware! ®
LOL Dave, Yes, yes it would.
So... most of that money is from the iphone only right? :)
heh I think it was Jon Stewart that asked Apple why they chose a service provider that prevents their phone from being used as a phone.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
That old Apple commercial is such a contradiction to their business model now lol
It was all about breaking away from the norm and doing something different and not be a drone...
But what they've done is create a following of drones that all have to have the same iPod or iPhone or iPad and they will just give their money to Mac for what ever new product they release at some ridiculous price.
