We actually fall short in a lot of important areas.
Its funny how some people on this Forum hop on this train of "Murica' ain't the greatest anymore." Guess what, we kinda are, we kinda will be, and for the the last 60 years we've had the largest number of technological patents out of any other nation on Earth.
I love my country but we really need to drop this line of thinking. Contrary to popular belief the rest of the world aren't just cavemen waiting for us to make them civilized lol
I love you but you really need to stop reading hipster doomsday magazines. Stop spouting the same nonsense that the media spoon feeds you. America is by far, the leader in modern technology.
Ahead of the world? lol..
People have been able to buy phones and plans separately all over the world for more than a decade now. 3G was allover Asia, Europe, heck even the Middle East years before it hit the US.
This and other "mobile technology" you speak of, gets popularized and tested in Asia and Europe way before they come to the US more often than you think.
Right, so because someone gets a product before us, they're ahead technologically? Tell yah what, just because americans don't get Porsches due to Emission laws, is our auto technology eons behind?
You need to travel and go out some more. There are other continents in this world besides North America.
You need to stop traveling and look around America. As for me, I've been to 5, lived on 5, and seen all 5.
OT: This is a great thing done by T-Mobile for those who simply can't afford a smartphone otherwise. I for one, sit on a 55$ plan, I'd hope on this in a heartbeat if I didn't have my trusty Lumia 710.
