The Problem With U.S. Cellphones

Cellphones in the U.S. transmit data more slowly than phones in Europe and have fewer features than those in Asia, where you can make calls on the subway or use your handset like a credit card. According to Kent German of Cnet.com, a technology website, “The U.S. is going to be behind for a long time.”

Despite everything Ron Paul says, free markets do not regulate themselves.

Competition will just as often breed the desire to crush a competitor instead of building a better product. And then you get monopolies with crappy products.

Although, I don't mind nit using my cell phone like a credit card. I've seen people who lose the cell phones faster then they lose their loose change. Something like that just seems to me like an identity theif's wet dream.

I was reading an article in PC Magazine as to why most technology is more technologically advance in Asia, is because over their more people buy the latest thing. In other words, consumers in America are slightly more rational and frugal when it comes to buying technology than most people in Asia, specifically the teen market. Apparently more youngs folks in Asia buy the latest and greatest than do here in America.
