Is Google the Future of Wireless?
Google is vying for a chunk
of the wireless spectrum
that supports Internet access and mobile phone
use, and is offering over $4.5 billion for it (chump change for the Google-izers!).
This is just one more indication that Google wants to do for wireless what
it's done for the Internet: Stake out a colossal market position and make everyone
else try to catch up (hmm, sounds like Google's copying Microsoft here!). The
neat thing about this is that Google wouldn't likely take a traditional approach,
but -- like Apple did with the iPhone -- surprise us all.
But this all might fizzle out. Anyone remember Google's bold plan to offer
wireless to all of San Francisco?
