What did you feed Mickey before this podcast? ;)
Jerry thinks Apple only cares about themselves? Of course they do, they are a business seeking revenue. Do we think Google is an all benevolent entity? Remember when Google pledged their allegiance to the red horned Carrier in support of allowing wireless carriers to limit internet access to end users?

For the gentleman who "just can't understand" why someone would want to turn off data:

#1. the caller who volunteered his time to leave you the voicemail /said/ he got improved battery life out of it.

#2. We get it, you'd never turn off data because you don't want a "no data, no nothing" scenario (as if all apps and all functionality requires mobile data and the android device becomes a paperweight). Just don't deride folks who make to decision to turn it off. Some of us poor folk like me can't afford data and make do with wifi when it's available and offline-capable apps (like CoPilot nav) when wifi is not available. If you want to pay for me to have a data plan I promise I'll leave it on 24/7. I won't even complain if it's 2G.
