Google on “Local Road Construction Requirements”:
 “Google recommends that cities adopt specific
 conduit requirements for their own road
construction and repair projects. In doing this,
 we encourage cities to incorporate this through
 a citywide conduit map/plan. They should
 then install conduit in every appropriate
 city-sponsored project where the streets are dug up.”

“Time Warner Cable has rebooted their
‘Roll Over Or Get Tough’ PR stunt as the
company continues negotiations with Disney
over carriage fees….Given that Time Warner
Cable raises your rates regardless of whether
 they roll over, play fetch, or get tough --
such campaigns are a rather hollow attempt
 to place consumers (who already face bi-annual
rate hikes) in the middle of debates between
perfectly-profitable cable companies and
 broadcasters.”
