Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam is promising a new wireless and wired cable TV package if the government were to approve their wireless spectrum purchase. Besides lacking any real details, we need to spectrum to provide the service to mobile devices, it does not make a lot of sense. No one has been successful offering mobile TV subscriptions, above and beyond your cable plan, Time Warner iPad app, so why would Verizon spend billions trying?

The rumors abound regarding Google’s Drive cloud storage application. The most recent, and hopefully accurate, is the service will launch the week of April 16th with 5GB of free storage to start. This more than doubles Dropbox’s 2GB of free storage. No word if the GDrive name is still attached – TechCrunch
Yes, Google has tried this before, selling mobile devices online. According to the WSJ, Google will sell ASUS and Toshiba tablets, or maybe the Google branded tablet, online via a new store. It is possible this might be part of the revamped Google Play store. Engadget
