Poll: FCC to Announce "Net Neutrality" Today. You Want?

Do you want legislated net neutrality?(polling)

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the FCC is set to announce what amounts to "net neutrality" today, something that will make users and technology companies like Google, Amazon, and Apple's iTunes ecstatic, while roshambo'ing Big Telco right where it hurts.

Basically, net neutrality means data carriers like cable and DLS providers and wireless/mobile telephone companies can't restrict what travels over their lines or airwaves. Data is data. Disallow SlingPlayer or Skype? Sorry, not allowed.

Apple Seeking More Info From iPhone 3.1 Users Reporting Poor Battery Life

An undisclosed number of users who have posted on Apple's discussion boards about poor battery life following the iPhone 3.1 software update are being contacted by AppleCare helpdesk with a hefty list of 11 follow-up questions. These questions focus primarily on the usual battery culprits, email (especially push), WiFi and Bluetooth, and App Store apps. Number 10, asking "When you notice a power drop, does it seem to be a legitimate power drop, or rather an issue with the battery icon indicator?", is certainly interesting.

Apple Responds to Full Disclosure of Google FCC Response

Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris has sent TiPb a response to the now fully public Google FCC disclosure, which Dieter posted earlier today.

So it's either Apple-said/Google-said, some broken-telephone (the irony!) between the two companies, or a mix of both?

Microsoft Office Web Apps Get Tech Preview -- iPhone Version Coming Later?

Now this is something from Microsoft that we're really excited about -- Office Web Apps that take the traditional second pillar of Microsoft's business and launch it up into the iPhone Safari browser-compatible cloud.

We'd prefer a native Microsoft Office for iPhone at this point, of course, but a free (ad supported, though hopefully not with 15-30 sec. un-skippable commercials...) version online? That's a great "good enough for now".
