Will someone please bring America out of the Communications stoneage?

Why is it that everytime I see a new phone with awesome features like a 5 megapixel camera phone, teh US is excluded? Everything cool in the form of wireless and broadband is either in Europe or Asia. But here in the good ‘ol USofA., we still have two cups and a string …

Where’s the true high speed broadband? Where’s the wireless broadband? Where’s the phones that actually have modern features and and not crippled by service providers? Why is my wireless bill 400% higher than in India, with the same service and features? And why do we still have plans based on minutes?

And why do I have to turn my iPod off when the doors to the planes close? I know my seat cushion can be used as a floatation device….
