This final note on the way out. A pause to observe a 5-0 vote in the Federal Communications Commission today. A rare moment of unanimity in Washington that could bring good things to a wireless Internet connection near you.
The FCC voted to set aside more of the wireless spectrum for Wi-Fi. It's not a done deal yet. Public comments and a final vote await. And yeah, there are other people using that same chunk of frequencies.
But at least maybe there's hope that someday your 11-year-old streaming videos won't jam up your home network. Not that I know anything about that.
