Linkin Park: Give Up
That, and the insurance companies win. They always do. If disaster hits, they lowball the settlement offers and raise their rates.
Quotes in support from the article:
Motorola CEO Ed Zander predicts WiMax will take off like a shot when WiMax-enabled devices powered by Intel chips — laptops, handhelds, smart-phones and more — hit the market next year.
"WiMax could be even bigger and more dramatic than the original Internet," he says, adding: "We're doubling down and betting the farm" on WiMax.
Quote opposed to WiMax from the article:
Kris Rinne, an AT&T senior vice president, acknowledges that her company has few WiMax licenses, but says that's not the issue. "We view WiMax as very suitable for fixed" locations, she says. For mobile wireless, however, "HSPA is the right choice."
For Rinne, it all comes down to the numbers. While mobile WiMax is in development, HSPA is based on a wireless standard called GSM that is already used by 85% of the world's mobile phone population. In addition, "more than 180 operators worldwide already use HSPA."
Her point: WiMax as a standard will have a hard time getting global traction. "Lots of times, a technology has some great aspects, but it gets overhyped in terms of how it will develop," Rinne says.
"In the U.S., there are a number of choices, and it's nice to have WiMax as another choice," he said. "But there are some places in the emerging markets where it would have been WiMax or nothing."
WiMax's popularity is growing as Internet service providers look for ways to connect more people, particularly in developing countries.
Last week, the U.N. telecommunications agency, the International Telecommunication Union, added WiMax to a global standard for mobile devices, signaling that airwaves designated for technologies in the standard known as IMT-2000 can now be used for networks based on WiMax.

Don't stay too long, no matter.
And how could it be my highest Dem is Dennis Kookynick? I think that quiz (or it's "solution") was likely invented by retarded liberals.
I am fairly successful trading around a core position. News looks bright for WiMax and ALVR seems to be charting their own course in overseas deployment of systems stockpiling contracts along the way. Why the hesitation?
now wouldn't that serve you right
just so happened kusynich came in 1st for me & I don't know squat about him .. but I was pleased that Mitt came in last
I am a paleo-con if I'm anything, and I know that survey is weighted to bullshit the leftish positions harder. Hence, you put in hard right stances and you get John McCain. Not bloody likely.
