A few things that happened in my Internet outage

We've had no, or spotty Internet coverage since Friday.  Long story, all to familiar to many.

Suffice it to say, my son was groggy one morning not from being up late from on the web.  He stayed up to read a book.  Maybe I should join my provider in knocking down our net for a day or two at a time.  Just thinking.

So I'm catching up a bit this morning.

Not surprised to see official word (sort of) that Google and Verizon are working together on a tablet.  I just hope there is a wi-fi only version of it too.

An Apple/AT&T vs. Google/Verizon grudge match can only help us consumers.  Should be a fun contest.  Apple is stronger than Google on design, but then Google is better than Apple on openness.

Verizon network vs. AT&T's network is no match.

And Apple has hinted the iPad's wi-fi issues will be fixed in an upcoming software fix.  My improved signal strength coming into the house has improved my iPad reception when in the far reaches of my home, but I still get the occasional loss.  I am planning on relocating my Linksys wi-fi to a more central point in the house to improve things further.

Busy day ahead.  have to consider what to do about Facebook.  Do I stay or do I go?
