PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A major deal just went down in the United States, which seriously shakes up the mobile industry on the other side of the pond: AT&T has announced it plans to buy T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom.

Hey, now American can experience the same joyful cellular rape that Canada's been loving for years now!

Looks like your major ISPs are following ours, too, with throttling and bandwidth caps.

The rest of the world has to be loving the way these huge companies are crippling high-tech services for North America.

Yeah, fortunately I still have Clearwire for my ISP. Its a 4G WiMax service with unlimited data usage. I've been using the service for 3 years with no issues, although if one were to read their forums, I'm in the small minority of users who consistently get 5 bars (I've moved 3 times in those three years and always had good signal). Still, I love it for what it provides as an alternative to the ISP monopolies.
