I’m not gonna lie, I love Google. No, I LOVE Google. Google.com, Gmail, Google SMS, Google Analytics, iGoogle (well the new iGoogle Gmail sucks), Google Docs, Google Earth, Google Calendar, shall I continue?

If you’re a techno-geek you probably already know about the battle for whitespace for wireless devices that we all use like microphones, in-ears, lights, stage controls, etc. Honestly I don’t know a lot about it, but I do know that 2009 is just around the corner and we’re all at risk of having a bunch of expensive gear that might not work or be legal very soon.

So where does Google fit into this picture and why are they evil? Apparently they are one of the major player behind the movement to open up these frequencies so they can get wireless internet more accessible – which by the way, I’m all about, just not at the risk of rendering all our wireless gear useless.

Here’s a couple sources to check out:

  1. Free the Airwaves
  2. FOH Magazine

Like I said, I don’t know (or really care to) a lot about the specifics. I’m not that worried – I can’t imagine the FCC making a decision that would effect so many around the country. But you never know these days…

    We tease that Apple is the Anti-Christ and Google is the Beast because those 2 giants can lead me blindly me anywhere they want to go.
    Well, not anymore, I’m going to check out those 2 sites :)

  2. I’m of the opinion that if apple and google join forces, we’ll be soon be living in a modern-day Matrix scenario.
