Apple: Contrary to Reports, Our Pants Are Not on Fire
Responding to the publication of Google’s unredacted answers to the Federal Communications Commission, Apple insists that it did not reject Google Voice. “We do not agree with all of the statements made by Google in their FCC letter,” Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris told me. “Apple has not rejected the Google Voice application and we continue to discuss it with Google.”
If that’s the case, those discussions can’t be going very well. Presumably, if they were, we wouldn’t have seen the publication of Google’s damning comments to the FCC. Anyway, Google (GOOG) doesn’t seem to have provided any correspondence in which Apple (AAPL) described Google Voice as being “rejected.” Unless Google can do that, this is a case of he-said/Steve-said. And we all know who comes out on top when that happens.
