App.net is no longer $50/yr. You can choose to pay monthly at $5 or for the year at $36.
Is this a response to Tent.is coming out for free with a $12 a month plan for “early adopter” status? I don’t know. But either way, if the way forward is going to be a paid social networking solution (and I’m all for that) I’m glad to see some competition in this space.
You may have already seen this, but if you’re thinking about buying or upgrading to an iPhone 3G next month, you need to see this.
Gizmodo took the time to compare the prices, monthly plans, and plan features for the original iPhone, the iPhone 3G, and the leading Smart Phones on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. Â What you’ll find is that the iPhone 3G will cost you more than the original iPhone after 2 years but it will cost you just about as much as the other leading Smart Phones on the market.
