[ NNSquad ] Apple, Wireless, and Where's the Money?


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.
