    Well, this would explain our frustration with Verizon.

    "Some experts and Verizon insiders believe the company is moving away from focusing on cellphones, which is no longer a red hot industry. Verizon said its revenue from wireless dropped last quarter by 4 percent compared with a year ago.

    As evidence of this shift, Verizon last week announced it plans to eliminate up to 3,200 jobs as it closes seven call centers in five states. Analysts say Verizon is going through an internal restructuring."

    Aren't they asking for a mere Billion $'s back because of the Yahoo hack and the fact it wasn't disclosed during negotiations?

    So much for Due Diligence. Imagine the fee the ***** auditors received for a $4 Billion deal to actually miss that fact.

    The future isn't in providing just a connection point to the Internet.... it's in providing the content.

    Verizon's problem is AT&T has been much smarter.... they bought Directv, looking at Time Warner and there have been some out media content and deliver companies they have bought. Now AT&T is letting you stream some of that content with no affect on your data plan.

    CDMA is going away, at some point.. it's going to become harder and harder for the carriers to differentiate themselves (if some of them ever build out their network).
