Best of 2009: Rumors we’d like to see come true

In 2009, everyone but the companies in question (okay, mainly Google and Apple) were talking about:

  •  Google buys Sprint.
  •  Cisco and/or Google acquiring everybody – both are back on acquisition trail, they say

  • The merger of prepaid providers Leap Wireless and MetroPCS.
  •  Google Phone – The Nexus One is – for all intents and purposes – official, but we won’t believe it until we hear it straight from the horse’s mouth.
  •  Apple actually announces the Apple Tablet, instead of everyone else.
  •  A Verizon Wireless iPhone (so we can see if Verizon’s network is as good as it claims it is)

Best Reader Response: That we’re about to have a redo of the late 90’s thanks to Economic Stimulus

Honorable Mention: Smart grid getting pushed out to the house on fiber connection.
