[ NNSquad ] Apple, Wireless, and Where's the Money?
http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=20994 What's particularly interesting about this ZDNET article is what it does not explicitly say. The same dynamic that it discusses -- that the real money when it comes to wireless is with applications, also applies to the non-wireless Internet as well in the form of *content*. The big bucks just aren't with providing access services, whether wireless or last mile non-wireless Internet, unless you've somehow coupled these to your own or affiliated content to feed customers over the network. And it's this dynamic that drives so many of the net neutrality debates today, as it seems every more apparent that given a truly level playing field, the big Internet ISPs see this profit center as being at great risk. --Lauren-- NNSquad Moderator
