What I've been reading

Intel has announced they won't be using Vista, ever. I'm not the least bit surprised, I mean who would use Vista voluntarily, but I'm impressed they had the balls to so publicly poke Microsoft in the eye.

There a couple of important petitions floating around. The first, at ruinediphone.com is about the absurd pricing structure Rogers is proposing for the iPhone in Canada. The second is for Bill C-555 which very tamely gives some legislative guidelines to some of the rather arbitrary surcharges commonly put on cell phone bills, like the nonsensical "system access fee".

I'd prefer the telecom business be as unregulated as possible, but the government must step in when the market fails as it so blatantly has in this case. Hell, we've fallen well behind the Americans, not to mention the rest of the world.
