Stacey Higginbotham on the Google-Verizon Net Neutrality Plan

Stacey Higginbotham follows the money:

So Google sold the tech world out as it hopes to keep one of the largest pushers of its Android operating system happy.

What happens to the heads of those who still buy the “Google is open, Apple is closed” worldview if Apple were to issue a statement disagreeing with this proposal, and stating a desire for wireless networking to be treated no differently than wired?

(As far as I can tell, Apple has been silent on net neutrality issues; for all I know, they support allowing preferential treatment for those companies that can afford it.)
