Verizon Wireless launches exciting new app service: The Oxymoron

'Innovation Center' at a company famous for quashing innovation from everyone else?

By  

Verizon Wireless, whose horror of the potential of new technology to eat into its fat fees and service margins has made it an infamous drag on the technological development of the U.S. cell phone market, has announced it is opening a multivendor Innovation Center dedicated to advancing technology in the cell phone market!

The conceptual and architectural oxymoron is not, as one might suspect from the word "innovation," the result of a corporate decision to change policies that benefit it and hurt customers by, for example:

No, the new Application Innovation Center that opens today in San Francisco today isn't dedicated to making up for the sins of Verizon Wireless' past.

In fact, it looks as if it is designed to let VW take even greater advantage of those sins at the expense of its customers, while appearing to offer them greater services.
