Nationwide WiMax from Sprint

by next year. Exciting stuff. All sorts of new applications and technology will result...IF a bunch of self-important Congresspersons don't strangle it with regulations. Brings to mind this T.S. Eliot quote:
"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves."

the WiMax technology, a wireless Internet connection for laptop computers and other portable devices that offers DSL-like speeds over a range of miles, as opposed to WiFi's range of several hundred feet.
