Why should the ISP care what you do with your connection, as long as
it doesn't affect their network?
Asinine initiatives like IMS and the desire for the telcos/cellcos to
have complete control over what their users do or don't do will cause
them to lose customers like crazy. They don't even understand what
kind of a detriment that crap will be to their service levels.
More information? Pick up the latest Wired and see how the
combination of Apple/cellcos/manufacturers/Hollywood managed to
produce such an inferior product as the Motorola ROKR phone. I hope
our moronic telcos continue to offer these lame-brained ideas up.
When they sell so many of them, they will continue to make items like these.
The same with protected CDs and DVDs.
I'm not sure the sheople will ever wake up.
