Verizon removes Blackberry search choice, forces use of Bing

My take on this - It doesn't matter whether the easiest to reach
search bar is locked to Bing, Google, or SamIAmSearch, there is no
reasonable excuse for making users jump through hoops to select their
primary search engine.  

    There's a router down in Queens,
    Fiber cuts in Mountain View,
    My Verizon rep just told me,
    That wireless flat rate is through.
    Now they forced a switch to Bing,
    Though I changed not anything!
    Oh FCC, where are you?
