MP3 lockout temporary???

by jlatimer    Jan 10, 2006, 11:19 AM

This is a quote from a story on Excite.com tech news page....

"Verizon dismissed accusations on certain Web logs that this decision was made for any ulterior profit motive such as forcing users to repurchase music through the V Cast store.

Instead, the company said, the MP3 capability was temporarily disabled so that it can be integrated into the V Cast application, rather than appearing as a separate application that might confuse customers.

Verizon Wireless also emphasized that the upgrade is voluntary: Customers who'd prefer to keep their current MP3 capabilities over an immediate upgrade to V Cast Music can wait until the next edition of the application is released at an undetermined date."

Interesting....maybe this is all just a temporary problem, or is it a spin on the negative reaction to this firmware upgrade?
