Google and Earthlink to Deploy SF Wi-Fi

Google Inc.'s nefarious scheme to fog San Francisco with a warm, milky shroud of Wi-Fi proceeds apace, with city fathers recommending them and Earthlink as the best candidates for the job. The anointment follows a six-week review and was a required prelude to opening negotiations with the two companies, which joined forces earlier this year. The AP says the companies will build the network on their own dollar, with the network expected to cost $15 million.
