    The biggest winner is Verizon. I’ll bet they splurged and spent $20,000 for dinner at Peter Lugar’s.

    The loser is the germans (t-mobile), what morons, but why break with past history.

    Flarion fails not because of technology, but because of eco-system. Never signed a tier one handset mfg. Timing on this deal and the events immediately preceding are very circumspect. Somebody emailed me that Tim Donahue (Nextel CEO) has sold 64% of his holdings (~$32m) so far this year.

    Thank god I’ve never had to come home and find my wife in bed with the lawnboy, but I image this is how it would feel.

Or, can we expect new technologies like WiMax to pick up the slack in the vacancies left by the defunct carriers? LNResources@aol.com
