With all of the buzz about the G1 from Google / T-Mobile in the past 24 hours there have been some great comments and reviews. There have been insightful discussions and interesting banter weighing the pros and cons, the reasoning for the way they've done certain things, features it may lack or contain, etc.  Those are all interesting and useful commentary. This is none of those things.

I promise to do more of that in the future, as I did yesterday, but this was too good to pass up. So, this one's from pretty far in left field, in a sense. I guess in another sense it's exactly germane. After all, you have to admit that a huge amount of network traffic is..well..here, just check out the image. It's almost like a Mac vs. PC add, but oh so much funnier.

 

 

 

Yeah, pretty silly, and perhaps a bit childish, but damn if I didn't laugh out loud when I saw it. This is courtesy of digg, of course. Porn does seem to be one of the major driving forces behind the Internet, though not necessarily of cool new technologies, just making sure that things are always bigger, better and faster.  Sure, we don't talk about it all the time, but it's there and we all know it.

Do I really believe the iPhone is toast? No, of course not. Do I believe that the most interesting thing about the G1 is the possibility for mobile porn? Lawl, no, not at all. But c'mon, that's funny. I just couldn't resist sharing this one. I do think, however, the open marketplace that Android is going to offer will be pretty darn interesting. Apple had a great idea with their marketplace, but keeping it under wraps and not allowing it to be truly open is going to stifle creativity in the long run. That's definitely something we've learned here on DC. Open and honest wins in the end. ;)

So there you go, a silly little funny for your Wednesday.
