All I Want for Christmas (or Hanukkah)...

November 23, 2004 11:17 am | Product Releases | Comments

Well, here we are at the end of another, more or less lackluster year for the telecom industry. So much for the prognosticators who swore we'd be back in rare form by Q3, '04. At the risk of getting yelled at by my readers who don't think I should step outside of the bounds of wireless, I'm going to take a bit of editorial license and maybe a bit of tongue-in-cheek-edness as well....
