Yeah, I don’t know….

You know, if I dropped out of an Ivy to start up a transportation app in Frisco, I think I’d offer an Android version, you know, for the 79% of the world what rolls that way.

But that’s just me.

Anyway, they’re not per se illegal from the get-go, and that’s so unlike a lot of Ron Conway*-type startups what litter the 415 these days, so they’ve got that going for them…

Nowadays if you want to make a phone call and you don’t have a cellie, you’ll have to buy a stolen iPhone the next block over.
