I know I'm a geek because I'm almost as giddy for this as I am for MacWorld: The rules and bidders (214 of 'em) for 700Mhz spectrum auction, which starts on Jan. 24, have been finalized. No surprises here—the heavies like AT&T, Verizon and Google have their shit in order and the C block fireworks look good to go. [Ars]
It'd be interesting if Google won it, but I'd hate to see them have to create an infrastructure from scratch. I think VZW's likely to put in a lot of work in this stuff, which is cool for me so long as they stick to their word on the "Any Device, Any App" initiative.
If they don't, fuck 'em. Let my mom win it for all I care.
