The Google phone company

Bob Cringely's latest column proposes that Google spend several billion to buy the 700 MHz band, sell "Google Cubes" that act as small fileservers, WiFi points, and the mesh of a 700 MHz network, and then "overnight" become the "biggest and lowest-cost ISP" and the "biggest and lowest-cost mobile phone company" while "dominating local- and location-based search".

Bob is thinking big today, it appears.
