Who Owns Your Phone?

12:45 PM -- I think that one interesting topic thrown up by Verizon Wireless 's move to open access in the U.S. is the question of who really owns your cellphone: Is it you or the carrier that helped subsidize its purchase? You can check out my writhings on this topic over at Internet Evolution: Whose Phone Is It Anyway?.

Side note: Gotta love how my picture gets progressively worse-looking with every new site Light Reading creates. I've gone from being your fat orange buddy on Unstrung to a hideously over-pixelated Tron guy on 'Net Evolution. Ah, progress!
