Worth Reading: Apple Blocks Political iPhone App? Plus, a Look at AT&T's Attack on Google Voice

First, in case you missed it Monday afternoon, check out my interview with Sen. Byron L. Dorgan (D-N.D.), where he says he and Sen. Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine) are planning a bill to help advance the process for new net neutrality rules at the Federal Communications Commission.

Now, for what's worth reading on the Web:

This wired.com story, if true, raises interesting questions about Apple's apps store, competition and the public interest.

A blog post titled "Google vs. AT&T: Net Neutrality, or the end of free conference calls?" at Saunderslog.com is making the rounds on Twitter. In it, author Alec Saunders explains how AT&T's letter to the FCC accusing Google's voice application of blocking calls to certain rural areas isn't about net neutrality. Instead, he breaks down some of the complexities of rules that require phone service operators to connect calls to remote rural areas and explains: "AT&T appears to be trying to drag Google into their fight over rural access charges."

This, like previous blog entries, demonsrates that Washington Post reporter Cecilia Kang has an extreme and dangerous bias on the topic of "network neutrality" and should not be reporting stories on it.
