Re: [newtech-1] The Future of the Internet - and How to Stop It

They guy mentioned Apple for a few minutes.  The video was 83 minutes
long.  And I do agree that an open architecture like Android will be
much better.  Closed systems are very bad.  Steve is trying to create
the perfect little phone.  His goal is 1% of the phone market, and
he's hopefully driving the rest of the market so the bar is raised.
If Apple gets lucky and gets 5%, that will be great for Apple, and it
will not hinder the rest of the market.
There will be a lot more Google phones than iPhones.

Btw, you can jail break your iPhone and run other things on it.  When
I get back to the States, I'll probably jail break mine.  Didn't want
to break it while on the road.
