FCC chair: Neutrality would trump any Google/Verizon pact

Posted in FCC by Conner Flynn on August 5th, 2010

According to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, any FCC policy on net neutrality that emerges will supersede any pre-existing arrangements by companies. This is alluding to the speculated deal between Verizon Wireless and Google. According to Genachowski, “Any outcome, any deal that doesn’t preserve the freedom and openness of the Internet for consumers and entrepreneurs will be unacceptable.”

Sounds good to us, but the FCC Chairman did not go into details if the FCC policy would include wireless or if such policy would only govern the Internet on PC and landlines.

IOGEAR’s USB-sharing Net ShareStation
When a device comes along that lets us operate with one less cable on our desk, we’re all for it. The latest offering from IOGEAR uses the sharing-over-network method with its new Net ShareStation.

It plugs into your router (wireless or not) and can take up to four USB devices of your choice, but you’ll need your own AC-powered 4-port USB hub if you want to use more than one device. Yes, that kinda sucks doesn’t it? But if you still want one, you can get it for $80.
