'AT&T FaceTime Blocking Hurts the Deaf'

Brendan Gramer, writing for Wired:

It's disappointing that AT&T is standing in the way of innovation that addresses the needs of its deaf and hard-of-hearing customers. Sometimes it takes a while (and some prodding) for technology and technology companies to catch up to and embrace accessibility. In this case the technology is there, but it's AT&T that's throwing up the barrier.

As a child of deaf adults, I can empathize with Gramer's disappointment. It's as if AT&T's ignoring Apple's message out of spite just to leech more money from their customers, accessibility be damned.
