Verizon announced yesterday that beginning next month, it too will offer service via the iPhone -- thus ending iPhone users' long national nightmare known as AT&T exclusivity. Jon Stewart's so excited by the news he used some seven minutes at the top of last night's Daily Show to celebrate the dissolution of Apple and downtown Dallas-based AT&T's exclusive arrangement. Said Stewart, the Verizon deal has created "a certain twinkle in, let's say, my pants," because the iPhone's no longer "the world's most popular almost-phone." The lengthy clip's on the other side.
