Microsoft, I tried to tell you...

"Verizon Wireless won the largest single block of nationwide airwaves offered in the Federal Communications Commission auction, paying $4.74 billion for the portion of spectrum known as the 'C' block."

Several months ago I blogged that microsoft could better spend it's money by picking up some of the nationwide airwaves coming on the auction block, due to the move over to digital of the networks later next year, rather than tossing it over for yahoo. Looks like Verizon picked up a huge bit of what was available, and just LOOK at the deal they got! I can't wait to see what things they put together to take advantage of the purchase.

The 380,000-plus-word database presented here allows, for the first time, the Iraq-related public pronouncements of top Bush administration officials to be tracked on a day-by-day basis against their private assessments and the actual “ground truth” as it is now known. Throughout the database, passages containing false statements by the top Bush administration officials are highlighted in yellow. The 935 false statements in the database may also be accessed by selecting the “False Statements” option from the “Subject” pull-down menu and may be displayed within selected date ranges using the selection tool below. Searches may also be limited by person or subject, or both, by using the appropriate selections from the pull-down menus.
