Well looks like techdirt.com has the right idea to me!!!Why Aren't The Telcos Paying Google For Making Their Network Valuable?Over the last few months, we've seen the heads of the remaining telcos talk about how Google and other big internet companies should be paying them extra and how they were getting getting a free lunch.

TechDirt has the dirt on a Voter group suing to block Diebold and their so-so certification of their voting machines in California. As I've always said, Diebold has too much of a hammerlock to just simply defeat. Someone is going to have to come up with something serious to dethrone them.
Look, young and old alike should be on the boat with this. Why would anyone want to have to constantly pay to see the same thing over and over again.
