The Drill Down 242: Occupy ISP
Mr. BabyMan   |  

On this week’s show, we’ll talk about Google’s ambitious plan to put Gigabit Fiber in every home, beginning with Kansas City. And a look at the 2012 London Olympics, an Olympics so far fraught with technical challenges and social media disputes.

But first, the headlines…Rumored launch dates for the next Apple iPhone and iPad Mini, Verizon can’t charge extra for tethering, Microsoft launches Outlook.com, and Digg relaunches!
