Yahoo BB 50MWhile Yahoo! continues to fall behind Google in the United States, they just made a major announcement in Japan. Currently, Yahoo! offers the Yahoo! BB internet service in Japan for 4,122 yen ($38). This service gives customers 45 Mbps access, which compared to the average United States and Europe broadband speeds is just absurd. The upgrade will feature even better speeds: 50Mbps download and 3Mbps upload.

They certainly are serious about broadband technology in The Orient. The US and Europe need to start catching up soon, and both candidates for the Presidency of the United States have made it clear that upgrading the US broadband market is a top priority.

Wi-BroWith WiMax being the talk of the wireless world lately, Wi-Bro has silently stepped up to the plate and grabbed the attention. South Korea is set to roll out this high speed wireless standard in 2006, aimed at users who remain in the same general area needing a connection (so, not for airplanes). This announcement does not come without controversy, of course. Intel is working on their version of WiMax, but it wont be ready as soon as Wi-Bro. The hotly contested Asian wireless market is up for grabs here, and if Intel comes out of the gate too late then the Wi-Bro standard will be the norm. Here we go again with the multiple standards problem. Fortunately, these guys may put their heads together (Wi-Bro is co-developed by Samsung, along with a few Korean Telecoms). Personally, I think that is the way to go.

We are now on the road to true 4G wireless communication.

Fahrenheit 9/11 P2PIt seems that Michael Moore is either a really brash SOB, or really has it out for Bush to the point where he doesn't even care about profit:

"I don't agree with copyright laws, and I don't have a problem with people downloading the movie and sharing it ... as long as they're not trying to make a profit off my labor," Moore said in a recent interview. "I make these movies and books and TV shows because I want things to change, and so the more people who get to see them, the better."

Okay Michael, if you say so.
