Perhaps it was just getting to be one leaked image of the iPhone 4 too many? Apparently three days before Apple revealed the iPhone 4, they asked the Federal Communications Commission to keep any photos and info on the device secret for 45 days. No inner workings were to be revealed according to the letter.
Love it or hate it (or just want to continually gripe out its lack of Flash), you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone with a pulse who wouldn’t relish the opportunity to spend some quality time with Apple’s latest piece of technology. So why is Apple insisting that we wait 60-90 days?
"Big Blue" makes a point to the FCC that landlines are becoming increasingly obsolete, having to spend millions of dollars on a dwindling technology. Yet AT&T has troubles with its current network congestion…hmmm...
Valley reports that the Federal Communications Commission voted to adopt
rules designed to speed up the process of getting new nodes on wireless phone
networks. State and local governments now must rule on site applications from
wireless carriers within 90 days if it’s an addition to an existing site, or
150 days for new sites.
