Voting info on your phone

Wednesday, October 1, 2008 | 2:58 PM

Interest in the upcoming U.S. elections is at an all-time high, so it's important for people to know how to register to vote. We've updated m.google.com/elections with information for each state about voter registration, early voting, and state voter hotlines. On phones with full web browsers, like the iPhone, you can also get all state online resources including complete online registration forms. (Not on a mobile device now? Send this URL to your phone.)

Voter registration deadlines are right around the corner (the earliest are Alaska, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Washington, which require mailed-in registrations to be postmarked by October 4) so be sure to check your state's rules in time.

Check out the Official Google Blog to learn about Google's other efforts to get out the vote.

What about Android and Google Apps For Your Domain? Will it work with GAFYD?

I despise any phone that does not let me choose the carrier. Phones that are locked to one carrier are disposable phones. I've had enough of throw-away phones, especially with the 300.00 price tags.

When google decides to let me have an open-hardware phone, I'll be on it. I'll gladly pay 4 or 5 hundred for a phone that I truly own and control. I'm willing to buy an OpenMoko or any other phone that allows me to choose the carrier.

I'm especially interested as a businessman in international and satellite phones. I can easily afford these, but then I'm locked into certain carriers there too. I hate the lock in.

HELP! Can a man not stand on principle any more? Must I surrender my morality and ethics without question? May I not do business in my own way? Must I be a slave to the overlord? I choose not. NO. Not me.

I bow to no man. I shake hands with all men.
