Apple is about to teach telecoms to fear free with FaceTime on iPod Touch

Cellphone carriers better prepare to understand the meaning of "tyranny of free." Today at Apple's fall product launch, Steve Jobs announced that iPhone and iPod Touch products can now make calls to other Apple mobile devices without the need for a cellphone contract.

It could take awhile for Apple and Google's similarly free voice calling features to go mainstream. But both products point to an ever present threat in the digital world, where free can be a nasty four letter word.
