+Mike McElroy Ok, see, CDMA and GSM used to be really good friends, until one day CDMA "borrowed" GSM's car without asking, and got into a little fender bender. Things have never been the same since.
+Stephen Shankland That's a really good question. I know that Apple employs its own electrical engineers to work on touch, so even though they buy (or bought) screens from Samsung Mobile Display, they add some of their own technology. I'm pretty sure Apple won't share their secrets with me, but I wonder if a third-party analyst has more insight.
+Lionel D I don't foresee that in the near future; the carriers profit from their business model and have such a stranglehold on the market. Unless or until there's a revolt, why would they voluntarily give customers more say?
