AT&T responds to FCC letter re: Google Voice mobile iPhone App


Hey, guys, I don’t mean to interrupt your Saturday or anything, but AT&T has something very important to say regarding the letter from the FCC it received.

It is, and I quote directly from the e-mail AT&T just sent us:

AT&T does not manage or approve applications for the App Store. We have received the letter and will, of course, respond to it.

But of course. So casual, despite the fact that the FCC is breathing down its neck.

The first sentence represents, I think, AT&T throwing Apple “under the bus,” to use that dumb cliché. A sort of, “Hey, guys, don’t get mad at us. Apple’s calling the shots here.”

You have to assume that Apple and AT&T aren’t the best of friends right now.

What a giant, unnecessary headache all of this is. And for what, really? A silly iPhone App? Come on.
