"The Boston Globe" quotes Executive Director of the Center for Internet and Society and Lecturer in Law Jennifer Granick in an article about how large telecommunications companies are loosing their grip on how BlackBerrys, Razrs, and Treos can interface with other devices:

"They're trying to control the platform, and they can tie various business plans or business revenue streams to it," said Jennifer Granick , executive director of the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society. "They all have excuses, but in the end it benefits their bottom line personally."
