Comments on news posted 2007-08-15 15:05:22: After the FCC released their 700Mhz broadband spectrum auction rules (pdf) a few weeks ago, there was ample applause that the Commission at least met Google's demands half-way. ..

Surprised?

I'm not. Oh well. Hopefully given enough time, things will change.

Sorry but I just don't have the time or patience to wait for the glaciers to advance across Tartarus in a sea of crystalline whiteness.

The FCC...

A government agency for big business, by big business (when you consider the backgrounds of some of the people running it)...

This is one agency that is proving to be about as affective as FEMA in working for the public's interests. Of course, at least with FEMA, you might actually get something while the FCC is proving that it doesn't plan on doing anything for the people it actually works for...

Needless to say, if ATT or Verizon (or any other existing cell provider) get the spectrum, don't expect anything good to come of it. The most likely outcome is that when they win it, they will sit on it, especially since they haven't announced any plans on what they would do with it.

Thumbs up for an aptly used allusion to classical mythology.

I think...

That the most appropriate thing to do is open a marraige gift registry for Kevin Martin and the incumbents.

Help them start their coming life together on the right foot.

well the problem is...

no one has asked them to prove the 'undo strain' certain apps put on their network. all eBay needs to do is sue them asking them to prove that Skype puts undo strain on the network.

Sue them on what grounds? There are no net neutrality requirements.

Anyone can sue anyone else. The question is weather or not eBay, Google etc. would have a cause of action.

It took lawyers this long to find a loophole?

I thought it was pretty obvious as i noted it the day they released it. Of course they are going to say that any software they dont want on their system causes "harm" especially if they dont have to prove it.

Follow the money, then the adminstration that appointed them. Martin is sounding more and more like Colon Powell's son.

Not using iskoot using skype directly but will check out iskoot.

Edit: Just visited the site they ask for too much info plus they dont support my phone model or windows mobile for that matter.
