Apple deep sixes Google Voice app on iPhone

Yeah, its TechCrunch, but they have a quote from Google.   They go on to spin a conspiracy theory about AT&T being behind the move, threatened by Google Voice.  While its true that no telecom can be pleased about having to adopt, adapt, and improve (motto of the Round Table and Microsoft)  their business model to accommodate Google Voice, I’d prefer to think that this little show of corporate animosity between Google and Apple may be for the benefit of the FTC.

Apple Is Growing Rotten To The Core: Official Google Voice App Blocked From App Store

Earlier today we learned that Apple had begun to pull all Google Voice-enabled applications from the App Store, citing the fact that they “duplicate features that come with the iPhone”. Now comes even worse news: we’ve learned that Apple has blocked Google’s official Google Voice application itself from the App Store. In other words, Google Voice — one of the best things to happen to telephony services in a very long time — will have no presence at all on the App Store. If there’s ever been a time to be furious with Apple, now is it.
