Verizon CEO grasping at straws .. we will not become just a network pipe!

Apparently Ivan Seidenberg just doesn't get it. My suggestion: Focus on one thing and do it really well. Apple develops very end-point good hardware/software. Verizon (and all mobile operators) should focus on a stable "all access" network. Having a company which primary focus ought to be "connectivity - anywhere, anytime" (Hey I like that..) focus part on their attention on the actual end-point device is silly.

What's even more bothersome is the comments he makes regarding Steve Jobs.

As handsets become banking tools and games controllers, he argues, mobile operators can up-end other companies' business models. "It's very cool. And Steve Jobs eventually will get old . . . I like our chances."

Yeah good luck with that..
