The thing that really bothers me about the move is that Apple is now actively stifling innovation. Google Voice is the kind of service that can actually have a positive impact on your life, and not in a frivolous, entertainment-related sense. It makes it easier to connect with people, and to manage those connections. Apple can point to the App Storeâ€™s 50,000 applications all it wants, but how many of them could truly be called groundbreaking? Are they really putting a dent in the universe?
