    Actually the company that makes this happen is Skype.

    Or Garmin

    ATT is now little more than a 2nd rate player in cell phones. Mostly made by Samsung

    this shows how companies have the ability to create these things. Every year the product gets a little better, but as we see here we could have everything alot sooner. If the companies were to create the I pad for example with out any problems or anything (so you wouldnt ever be compelled to buy the new and improved) they would be shooting themselves if the foot. This happened to Toyota I believe in the 80's or 90's where there cars never needed any repairs, nor did they rust. They are just playing us for our money.
