My opinion and Google's  —  Posted by Lauren Turner, Account Planner, Health  —  Well, I've learned a few things since I posted on Friday.  For one thing, even though this is a new blog, we have readers!  That's a good thing.  Not so good is that some readers thought the opinion I expressed …

Why Apple will NOT Take Over the wireless industry  —  In response to the article How Apple Will Use The iPhone To Take Over The Wireless Industry, I'm opening by saying "take over" is a ludicrous claim.  Do you have any idea the sheer volume of mobile handsets sold worldwide?

Ryan Block / Engadget:
Poll: got iPhone activation problems?  —  We heard yesterday that despite some issues over AT&T way, iPhone activations would (hopefully) be up and running smoothly by as early as this morning.  Of course, evidenced by the flood of users continuing to tip us, we'd say a great deal of you are still experiencing activation problems.

AGING THE INTERNET PREMATURELY, ONE PDP AT A TIME  —  After blogging about ICANN's new gTLD policy or lack thereof, I've had several people ask me why I care so much about ICANN and new top-level domains.  Domain names barely matter in a world of search and hyperlinks, I'm told …
