This is the among things -- censorship, proprietary through and through -- that drive me nuts about the coming wireless takeover. In the US, the Obama administration's FCC just handed over wireless internet to the corporations, who will do everything they can to make sure you never get what you want online. They'll censor the "tier" off the internet so that you're forced to use their search choices, their mapping choices, their software choices, their "data" plans, and so on. In other words, when you buy a tablet computer, you're really just buying a big damn phone contract where every minute costs you up the yinyang.
I'm blue in the face from saying it, but I don't want to rely on a corporation to tend my data or to decide where I go and what I see online. I shouldn't have to buy your hardware to get where I want to go (online).
