monopolies R' Us
I mean Microsoft, and Verizon. Imagine if you will if this happened. Cell Phone/Data's biggest/best server (or soon to be after they over take Cingular, which I am not trying to start a flame thread, just being honest from all my understandings and wat I have read, it will only be a matter of time) and Microsoft merging would make one of, if not THE world'...
your thought does have valid point though.
Don't really know, but they way Cingular just bought out ATT...don't see Cingular going into Verizon.
I just don't see why Cingular, running on apparently a global standard that seems to be a bit more cost effective would suddenly want to go CDMA.
Any light on this?? Specially since CDMA is primarily a US thing and apparently costs more, plus the need to be licenced or approved to use it...(i think thats what it is.)
Would it not cost more to buy CSM into CDMA?? Or is Verizon going to switch to GSM to do the buyout?
Understand now? This could easily have affects on everyone whether you use VZW or not.
I bought this awsome new car but hated the Vtec engine so I replaced it with my 4 banger from my old pacer.....its more reliable
Win98SE was relatively stable after all the patches.
WinME was probably the worst version I have ever worked with.....and I have worked tech support for a university....
WinNT 4 was very good, just very limited.
Win2K was good, but demanded good hardware.
XP is just an upgrade on 2K, with a emphasis on having faster hardware.
I downgraded from 2K to 98 on a machine simply because it ran MUCH faster that way.
It's all personal prefrence and what you're doing that determines what direction you should go.
Simple math, $15 a month for V-cast, + cost of songs + $40.00 music essentials kit + $300 upgrade= FREEDOM OF MUSIC. ROFLMAO, how is it any type of "free"?
Its Microsoft and VZW working together to rip ppl off. But thats another story altogether...or is it?
Only a matter of time sigh
Together they would just own all tech in the US, and own all means of communications and internet. I mean this doesn's sound too far fetched does it all things considered with how Microsoft had one of the best monopolies for a long a$$ time. Going for round 2 would not surprise me and this time they would have almost twice as much revenue off of it. Pay off the big man, make the money BLING BLING
you cant buy stock in vzw, fyi..
you should buy VOD, not VZ.
verizon couldnt buy cingular becuase it is too big plus there would be bell south(ATT) and verizon and thats just too big.. now with the wireless assets it would even bigger..
i gues you were talking about micro. i just read it wrong
