If I’m not mistaken, broadband penetration currently sits above 50% in the US. Hard to believe, but it does, at least according to the last set of reports I read. Course, this could mean these folks are sporting something over 128Kbps, which is obnoxiously slow in my book. Now, according to PCWorld, broadband penetration will hit 77% by 2012. What’s the upside of this? Perhaps the networks will begin concentrating on our connection quality versus distribution. Daily my Internet connection is problematic. It’s not that I can’t download a file at a reasonable speed, it’s that I can’t request websites quickly (talking over 50ms). The reason for the penetration will be attributable to 4G, such as Wimax.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
