  1. I hate you for using WSJ as a source as I am not a member and therefore cannot read the article.

    1. You can typically bypass any subscription news service by Googling the headline of the article.

  2. If the deal between the LightSquared failed, there is
    Clearwire’s deal that would replace the former LTE service provider. With Sprint
    breaking the deal with LightSquared, the final decision was made to call off
    the services to allow it to build out its planned network. If the permission to
    use the spectrum that was classified for the use of satellite, perhaps this
    scenario would not arise today.

  3. So an ex-Microsoft employee was in charge of the team for Google+, then became an ex-Google employee to go back to Microsoft. No wonder it failed. Can’t change idiots.

  4. Your link to Google being investigated by the FCC is broked btw.
