This week continues the iPhone overload theme, I really like Mossbergs’s coverage of his 2 weeks the device, Telecom gets coverage in Business Week, VZ hits 1Mth FiOS customer mark, Google posts “net neutrality” position, Broadcom finds way into Iliad Service mix, Google gets into VOIP, MetroEthernet, and FTTH/PON.
In Careers and Mgmt land Marc Andreesen just keeps the gems flowing. The depth and quality is fantastic. Highly recommended.
NB. All of these are in my delicious widget on the right and @ http://del.icio.us/hNorth/blog.
- Testing out the iPhone – Mossberg SolutionMossberg team tests for 2 weeks – best detail I’ve seen on iPhone
- Telecom: Back From The Dead – Business Week – Good Article on Telecom. Includes notes on competition from Internet playeres ( ie Google Infrastructure )
- Verizon has a million FiOS customers — GigaOM
- Google Public Policy Blog: What Do We Mean By “Net Neutrality”? – Good to see Google’s view on the topic.
- Iliad and Differentiation (brcm software) — TeleBusillis Chip Vendors finding ways to get more margin from their hardware. I wrote about this challenge a few weeks ago. Take a page out of the system vendors playbook – software gets more margin out of the hardware. It’s a brave new world for CommSemi’s.
- Telecom, Meet Web 2.0 at Nyquist Capital (Grand Central google) Andrew has good post on Google and its VOIP acquistion.
- METRO ETHERNET: FINALLY THE HEADLINER – Telephony Online Hmmm … it’s been a while … these changes work on glacial timeframes.
- Fabless companies’ rankings stable in falling Q1 market — EETimes.com
- NXTcomm: GPON Wrap-Up — Light Reading

- Netgear Ubiquisys : necessary but not sufficient for femtocells – Dean Bubley – Home Routers integrating Femto Cell support. 😎
Careers & Mgmt
Marc Andreesen’s blog is an fantastic source of posts on this topic. Here are ones I like this week ( ie all of them 😀 )
- blog.pmarca.com: The Pmarca Guide to Startups, part 5: The Moby Dick theory of big companies
- blog.pmarca.com: The Pmarca Guide to Startups, part 3: “But I don’t know any VCs!”
- blog.pmarca.com: The Pmarca Guide to Startups, part 4: The only thing that matters
- blog.pmarca.com: The Pmarca Guide to Startups, part 2: When the VCs say “no”
- The Pmarca Guide to Big Companies, part 1: Turnaround!
- Out: Trade Publishers. In: Gigaom and TechCrunch – IP Democracy – agree with this. I really like Om Malik’s Blog. I used to read TechCrunch, but it has become overwhelming to follow ( just too many posts per day) and it is very Web 2.0 focussed. I had to choose one and went with Om’s ’cause he follows broadband very closely.
