re:EU Officials Propose Internet Cops On Patrol, No Anonymit

Seems Facebook would go along with this. They're all in favor of no anonymity and in people finking on their friends:

Regarding the 802.11ac article.

Ruckus is still the only company i know of that has MU-MIMO with smart antennas. So if 802.11n is doing the job for you, i'd wait for second generation 4x4 smart antenna support and it should be the best time to buy an ac router in terms of features, since i doubt we'll ever see 8 antenna Access points.

RIM still struggling with outage?

I am amazed they even still sign on any new enterprise customers, I would not want to make my business depend on something that could suddenly not be there and whos repair is completely out of my control.

I mean any network can go down, Even the cellular data net itself. But at least when you own the servers or have a hosting firm you can directly deal with you have control and have the ability to get ETAs on repair.

Really if Win Phone 8 can fully integrate with Active Directory and have applied corporate rules from the server. the days of RIM as an Enterprise class device are over and they will either be cut up and sold off or devolve into patent trolls.

Re: RIM still struggling with outage?

lol, I was so glad when I upgraded from bb curve 8310 to iphone 4- the difference was dramatic. bigger screen, better interface for sms/mms, email, apps, and speed! Curve was chocking on radio apps, while iphone had no problems.

Virtual MSOs

Simply not gonna happen.

The content owners aren't going to cheapen their product.
The networks aren't going to unbundle (and cheapen their product).
The MSOs aren't going to sit by quietly and OTT content bypass their primary product.

We've been willing to pay higher per-channel rates for ala-carte (i.e. $3/channel-month, 10 channel minimum) for years, but even where it would actually be very lucrative for the content owners, assuming responsibility for transport and delivery and customer service and billing - that's too scary for most MBA's to propose vs. the usual linear models.

Re: Virtual MSOs

exactly the content owners will never allow anything to shake up the market. When content is owned by a few, Innovation in its delivery can be limited.
