The way in which radio spectrum is currently allocated to different wireless technologies can lead to gross inefficiencies. In some regions, for instance, the frequencies used by cellphones can be desperately congested, while large swaths of the broadcast-television spectrum stand idle.
A new GPS satellite has been launched into space. An unmanned Atlas V rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station this afternoon. It was the fifth time since December that an unmanned Atlas V rocket has been launched. The GPS 2F-4 spacecraft will join a constellation of other satellites circling already orbiting 11,000 miles above Earth.
The fiber optics market has experienced a significant increase in demand over the last decade, largely driven by the rise, availability, and affordability of sophisticated portable electronics, such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptops.

This year's event mostly consisted of upgrades to existing Google services that have already become daily habits for millions of people — one of Page's main goals. The new features assume most people want more help managing their lives from Google's brainy engineers and the sprawling data centers that house its millions of computers around the world.
To the U.S. technology industry, there's a dramatic shortfall in the number of Americans skilled in computer programming and engineering that is hampering business. To unions and some Democrats, it's more sinister: The push by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg to expand the number of visas for high-tech foreign workers is an attempt to dilute a lucrative job market with cheap, indentured labor.
