FON: WiFi everywhere! Been ignoring this company for a while now, but it looks like they are quite serious about building a worldwide mesh of WiFi access to challenge the mobile telephony companies. Word on the street is that another big time player is going to be entering this battle as well, and that's enough to make me pay attention. (Hint, you can probably figure out the company by skowering the FON site). As for the longer term connectivity issues, at least in the US, watch out for what happens with the large chunks of bandwidth that got allocated for HD broadcasting...
