What happened Google? My dreams have been crushed, partially.
Google is being cautious with spending as adwords clients reduce their own spending.
<rant>I hate Verizon</rant> <!-- sorry folks, I just really can't stand them... - >
Verizon is slowly becoming the communications king.
Google is probably hurting from the $80b or so they've just lost in their stock price.
Yesterday Verizon came out the the details on how it is going to open its network to a wide array of mobile devices that they do not offer through its own retailers.
Hmmmm. They are getting out of the device biz and showing little real interest in the content biz, both, while going after more capacity to serve the consumer.
This is a good thing for the Internet and those who call themselves webmasters.
Damn, how come I did not come up with the idea and patent selling waves in the air? Missed that boat.... Haha! 19.5 billion? Wow!
|Verizon Wireless, a joint venture with Vodafone Group Plc, won the nationwide "C" block of the auction, giving it control of a major piece of the airwaves being vacated by television broadcasters as they move to digital signals in early 2009. |
Does that mean the TV will now pick up cell phone calls?
the tv may receive signals at the existing/previous "carrier" frequencies within that spectrum but the signals will be essentially noise since they will be digital signals containing communication packets rather than analog audio/video signals modulated on those frequencies.
in other words, the tv will pick up white noise and "snow"...

and one would think that in a "free country" air is a basic human right. and a FREE AIR would be a right. and one could use their own transmitters and jammers because it is their ESSENTIAL RIGHT. Yet apparently some self-proclaimed "authority" calls themselves "government" and feels they can "regulate" these things.
19.5 billion is nothing if you buy a monopoly and can charge people whatever.
I wonder if a class action is possible against these folks for air pollution.
are you suggesting full spectrum dominance or chaos or anarchy?
imagine if anyone could broadcast any signal, at any power, anywhere, at any or all frequencies...
