I don't recall exactly what it was, but I thought I remembered that GSAT had already crossed swords with Apple in some way that would seem to preclude partnering. Still think IBM - who has been moving more and for toward B2B business - or Amazon, seem more likely. Especially since IBM owns such a big chunk of what would otherwise be such an unlikely alliance: Yipi.
Iptechpat, You've said that there may be something more to the new experimental license than what GSAT has so far acknowledged. Is there anything you think they should have done/tested/presented-results-on by now that hasn't been done?
Would everyone here agree that this is true? Is there no possibility at all that they believed Gerst et al, and that they are saying TLPS is flawed enough to now force a vote to shut it down?
Still don't understand the fascination with Yippy. Globalstar has bought a position in a church-going little guppy that's surrounded by a sea of sharks.
When it went to $4.50 a couple of years ago, I kicked myself for not having bought more. I've bought twice in the last year, doubling my position.
Either there is interference or there isn't. The better question is why Monroe isn't spending more money showing lack of interference. Facts are facts, and the FCC will make its determination based on whether TLPS interferes with other Wi-Fi or not.
But this device does not analyze interference, only congestion. What we really need is definitive evidence that there is little or no interference, because that is what the FCC would be most concerned about. Seems like Dooley ought to be spending more time showing compatibility.
Actually, I find their pushback both a little threatening, as well as encouraging, in that it is evidence that GSAT is knocking at the door of the big leagues.
Though I could not say definitively whether it was a slam or a pump, the interesting thing I keep coming back to is that the supposed big boys who keep saying TLPS will interfere have yet to really show solid evidence of that. The 'four routers on the table' thing was a bit distressing, but the fact that so little actual evidence of interference has been presented is - if nothing else - encouraging. If interference was a real concern, it would have been put out clearly and definitively.
