    Then you will know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

    Remember back a few months ago Google tried in vain to get it’s application called Google Voice on the Apple App Store, but was soundly rejected. [Our Story: Apple, Google, AT&T Respond to FCC Questions]

    Then the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) stepped in and Apple swore that Google Voice hadn’t been rejected, but was instead still under review. They even stated as much in a formal response to the FCC. Then there was the response Google made to the FCC inquiry in which much of the letter was redacted.

    Well now, due to public pressure and several freedom of information act requests, the full context of Google's letter is out and sure enough Apple DID reject Google Voice. Click Here to read the full version.

    This doesn't suprise me in the least. AT&T are like Sprint where they don't block anything on their network. I am not suprised at this and I always pretty much knew Apple was to blame.

    I think Apple is the one to blame. I am with ATT and have google voice on my BB. It worked perfectly from the day one.

    Microsoft did it for years.

    If Apple really gets out of hand the government will step in. Simple as that.

    Apple has some stupid reason as to why they think releasing this will hurt them in some way. It could be founded or unfounded. It really stinks for Apple iphone users, however you have to remember that bad business for a company eventually is bad business for a consumer... so if Apple thinks this will help them and they are correct it will help consumers if they are wrong it will hurt consumers... bottom line though is that it is their own choice and they made the iphone.

    from wikipedia

    Laissez-faire to allow events to take their own course, or to let people do what they choose.

    In economics of the Chicago School, it has become a doctrine that holds that the state should never intervene in the marketplace.

    The term is often used to refer to various economic philosophies and political philosophies which seek to minimize or eliminate government intervention in most or all aspects of society.

    Yeah, not to be rude, but the Chicago school was/is wrong, and many/most of the people who liked it now realize it's a bit extreme.

    HUH?

    How can you be rude? The person who made the wiki probably donst read this site! If your trying to be rude to me then just making a comment like that doesnt upset me since it isnt even a comment. I was saying that all in all they should let apple do what they want... if apple made a bad decision it WILL bite them back...

    I dont believe Apple ever claimed to have open ended appstore like Google Android is, so what are they doing wrong, besides making a mistake and upsetting one of their own software providers?
