I Made the NY Times!

I’ve been wondering where the heck all the traffic has been coming from today… well, David Pogue’s tech column in the NY Times cites the research I did on the Futurephone story. To be clear, I don’t think there’s anything sneaky or underhanded about what Futurephone is doing. It’s an old old telecom game. How do you think all those naughty chat rooms with numbers terminating on Carribean islands fund their businesses?  Same method.  Rather, my objection is to calling the service “free”.  Just because you’re already paying for a bucket of minutes, and Futurephone doesn’t require an additional fee doesn’t mean that it’s “free”.

Thanks for the traffic, David!
