The pot calling the kettle...

Interesting article in the SMH about a Telstra executive who is pouring scorn on the iPhone and telling Apple to stick to its knitting...

Presumably, Apple has decided on Optus as its local partner for the iPhone, a natural fit in the light of their long relationship. Of course Telstra has a real shortage of interesting handsets, due to their decision to adopt an unusual 3 Generation network configuration, not supported by mainstream handsets.

As far as any company sticking to its knitting is concerned, I've been waiting for a Telstra Broadband connection in our new office for the past month. And its mobile broadband network went down in our local area for over 24 hours and they couldn't tell me when it would get back up. We gave up and worked from home.
