Today in Mobile

Today’s must-read comes via Wired and is a fascinating behind-the-scenes history of the relationship between AT&T and Apple. The piece, which actually posted yesterday afternoon, boils down to the conflicting goals between the two companies: Apple pushes hardware by encouraging people to use mobile data as much as possible, while AT&T wants to maximize profits without clogging its networks. Apple certainly comes across as the alpha male in the bittersweet partnership, but as TechCrunch points out: it’s hard to feel sorry for AT&T.
