Internet & Networking Well, this is interesting. As some rumours already suggested, Google and Verizon have released a joint proposal for a legislative framework regarding net neutrality. This being Google and all, some of you may expect this to be all flower-farting unicorns darting across rainbows, but sadly, that's not the case. This proposal? Well, it's not good.

"This wireless internet will not have net neutrality of any kind."

And this is where google will make a crap ton of money on this. If you think of how much internet traffic comes in currently with Android on Verizon's phones it's mind blowing. Both companies can tap into this area for untold amounts of cash and true neutrality in this arena could hurt profits for both companies. The version google and verizon are offering up is a "we'll meet you in the middle" type of solution. More details need to come out, and a formal response from the FCC is needed. But as for real neutrality, I wouldn't hold my breath on this one...
