    A story out this weekend certainly isn't going to help erase this perception.

    AT&T can't have it both ways.

    On Friday, AT&T sent a letter to the FCC accusing Google of violating the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality rules. But AT&T doesn't see its one-way relationship with Apple's iPhone as a violation of the same.

    FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, however, is dropping hints that he does.

    From the SFC this weekend:

    I use my Mac for work, and don't often have as much time as I'd like to click around and explore. As a result, I've found a few Snow Leopard refinements purely by chance, but have learned about most of them by word-of-mouth. The Finer Things in Mac blog has become a cool resource for finding out about some of the lesser-known new features, and I've already made changes to my workflow and settings ...

    While most iPhone users were too distracted by their long-awaited MMS service on Friday to even notice, AT&T went after Google once again yesterday.

    In a letter to the FCC, AT&T accused Google of violating the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality rules.
    Apple asked federal regulators to stop Google Inc.ís voice application from "improperly" blocking telephone calls to some rural areas.

    3.0. No carrier setting edits. Cody gets a text from AT&T saying:

    Send and receive are both working well for him (who else out there - who has never done a carrier settings hack and is on AT&T?).

    EDIT: A little more info - his Settings > General > About shows carrier as AT&T 5.0, mine is showing AT&T 4.0. What are you guys seeing?

    AT&T had said they'd ...

What's more, Apple has also come under fire for operating under a veil ...
