That was quick. It was only yesterday that a rumor started swirling alleging Apple might compete with cellular carriers and offer its own service. This morning, Apple swatted down that rumor. Normally Apple doesn't comment on such rumors but it probably doesn't want to anger the folks responsible for selling a large portion of its iPhones and iPads. Such a move would force AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and others to strongly reconsider dedicating resources to Apple products. Android and Windows Phone would only get a boost from such a move, so it never seemed plausible to me.
