I believe it was
Mark Twain BBCool Simon who once said, “If you own the tracks and the trains, you own the passengers.” In Canada, if there was ever a modern day version of the great train barons, it would be the telecoms: 3 year contracts, expensive data plans compared to our U.S. counterparts, lizards selling phones… it’s terrible.
Yesterday Simon had a great interview with Canadian MP David McGuinty, who has introduced a bill to eliminate extraneous wireless costs like data overages and system access fees and unlock all phones. However, we want to do one better and bestow the BlackBerry Nation with the (hypothetical) power to regulate carriers any way you see fit. What will you do?
LAST WEEK’S WINNER IS Murphy the Dog, who wrote maybe the funniest post to ever appear on BlackBerry Cool:
I’m on the fence but leaning towards the Thunder. I think I prefer the bigger screen over real keyboard. I have a problem with small keyboards anyway you look at it. Spell Check is my friend. Will be adding what ever Micro SD card it will allow. I haven’t been this excited since the time I forgot how to sit down. I hope its not as disappointing as that Aaron Neville Bullhorn that I bought at that garage sale.
