The funny thing is, this happened (link to AP) before I filed my brilliant analysis on the subject of European court and law-imposed unlocking of iPhone. However, even though the German court, operating under my precisely tuned radar, pulled its injunction against iPhones locked to T-Mobile, German law still requires that iPhones be unlocked after the 2-year contract expires.
Anyways, my point remains.
You can't get this kind of up-to-the-yesterday news commentary at any price, my friend. It may also interest you to learn that I spotted the updated AP story on my trusty news ticker, the Nintendo Wii that I'm giving my kid for Christmas.
I see that despite the fact that I have tons of actual work to do, I'll have to explain why I had my son's gift out of its box. I had to pair it with my Airport Extreme, install the batteries in the remote and set the parental controls. And wouldn't it be a drag if it came out of the box on Christmas not working? Yes, I absent-mindedly left it out in my office, and it was sitting next a GameCube controller and Blockbuster rentals of Super Mario Galaxy and Sonic Heroes. He saw that whole pile, but in my office, they blend. When we're all gathered 'round the tree, he'll pretend to be surprised, and I'll pretend that I didn't check it out. Isn't that everybody's Christmas?
Stop judging me.
