I just want to pay Verizon to be a dumb pipe.



TechCrunch’s MG “crazy headline guy” Siegler stirred a ruckus with his post about Verizon’s new Android app store, which may or may not compete with Google’s own store.

The jury’s still out about whether this is a very bad, slightly bad, or not-at-all bad move.

But I found a fun line buried in the typically overheated comments section: “I just want to pay Verizon to be a dumb pipe.”

Wouldn’t life in the open mobile-sphere be easier if that was possible?
