And over here, a voluntary tax on your smartphone apps

I’m looking at the Verizon announcement that you can “boost” the bandwidth used by your smartphone’s applications with a mix of amazement at a crazy idea (Ben Smith covers this bit far better than I could), but I’m also nodding in an evil Leonardo Leonardo way at the finances.

With the rise of smartphone applications, the network portals have been sidestepped by a significant proportion of users, with the income going to the developer and the handset app stores. It now appears Verizon have a funky way of adding a voluntary user tax to the app experience.

Well played, Clerks…
