    It isn't news, but its making headlines this weekend: Verizon doesn't like AT&T... or Apple.

    And, frankly, Verizon wants us to know it. Consequently, it seems Verizon is behind the launch of what some are calling a blatant "attack ad" on the iPhone that rivals some of the worst political attack ads we've seen in recent years.

    Apple has demand for more iPhones than it has the ability to supply, and this is worrying the money people who have banked on Apple's success. In particular, there's concern that supply problems - noted in global markets outside the US - will hurt revenue and cause the stock price to drop.

    With Apple due to report its quarterly earnings on Monday, Wall Street ...

    It's fortunate that there are other options for tethering to your iPhone, because AT&T has made it clear that they are not going to provide one anytime soon. While they have been pushing tethering to Blackberry users, the carrier has been reluctant to commit to anything for its "Hummer of smartphones" customers.
