Ok, It's Official - Aliens Have Landed and Abducted Verizon Executives

Alright. Joke's over. What is going on?

Still reeling from the announcement earlier in the week that Verizon is opening up its network to 3rd party developers, I open up my new reader today I find this little gem:

"Verizon decides on LTE for 4G Wireless."

Huh. Really?

In one week, the Big Bad of the wireless industry - the company who told its OEM partners to cripple bluetooth on their handsets - decided to all cute and cuddly with developers? Oh, AND abandon EV-DO (excuse me - offer an offering in addition to EV-DO) in lieu of 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks and go toe-to-toe with WiMax?

...I have to go lie down.
