steve jobs has to be rolling in his grave right about now!remember the comment he made about cellphones being able to run on only wi-fi only to bypass all the carriers

So ... should I pay less to my carrier now because my calls are no longer on "their" network?
On the flip side ... is my internet provider going to be charging me more now because of all of this "off loading" voice traffic that it has to now handle.
And ... when my call gets dropped ... who do I blame for compensation ... the carrier (Oh, sorry, you were not on "our" network at the time ... please call company X") ... the internet provider (Oh, sorry, we are not your carrier ... please call your carrier") ... ???
I think this all seems pretty lame. Off loading to WiFi is not the answer in my books. The carriers need to beef up their networks accordingly.
