LightSquared today said test results recently revealed by the Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing national executive committee were rigged by the GPS industry.

P.S. And I thought I got rid of my soap opera addiction after 3rd grade??
LightSquared needs to give it up already.

From their announcement, their plan sounded fantastic, but I was always skeptical. Now it seems once they embezzled money from all these companies that are relying on a 4G technology to get their services a...
