So, read this headline from I Want Media, and tell me what’s deeply wrong with it:
Cingular Plan to Let Users Post to MySpace Blogs
Cingular Wireless customers will be able to access the content from MySpace, under a new plan. Cingular cellphone customers will be able to post to their MySpace blogs while also sending and receiving e-mail. Cellphones are more and more becoming mini-entertainment devices.
Yep. The whole “Cingular to Let…” concept. I mean, my God. Since when do I give a shit about what Cingular will or will not let me do? It’s so damn typical of gatekeeper distributors. Ugh. MySpace best beware. Cutting too many of these deals with the dumbass devil, and the folks who made you # 1 will abandon you for someone who understands the value of open networks.
