    Motorola's not making phones anymore? It looks like they've got a fairly extensive line atm...

    If it comes to fruition, in that WiMAX overtakes 3G, I can see my car suddenly gaining a WiMAX ariel..

    I've not been involved in the news this morning as I was out looking at offices and in meetings finalising the details for this, but I can say that no, they're definitely not leaving the mobile phone industry just yet - this link is pretty conclusive: http://www.motorola.com/consumer/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=e4498e22a0b2b010VgnVCM1000008206b00aRCRD

    They dropped from #2 to #3 in the world after handset sales dropped by 38 percent last year and the CEO is now overseeing the business himself. I reckon they might sell it off eventually though...

    Sorry for any confusion - I have updated the story!

    I don't know how widespread Now is but there is coverage at our school which a lot of people use to bypass the silly school internet.

    Its a good system, though for some reason it takes a few hours from the box having been moved to the internet being back at full speed.

    WiMax is also a big thing here in South Africa because it is so much cheaper and easier to implement for the last mile. But everyone has been dabbling around it and nothing special has happened. I can only dream I suppose!
