We took our oldest son to see Ratatouille today. And we realized as we were coming out of the film that every Pixar movie is really about discovering who you truly are.
And right now, what really freaks me out is that Google knows more about me than I do.
Google's potential involvement in the upcoming FCC spectrum auction is the most public sign yet of the coming Google-pocalypse for mobile carriers.
According to the NYT's Miguel Helft and Stephen Labaton:
"If Google succeeds with federal regulators, it could change the way millions of Americans use their cell phones and how they connect to the Internet on their wireless devices.
In the Internet giant's view of the future, consumers would buy a wireless phone at a store, but instead of being forced to use a specific carrier, they would be free to pick any carrier they wanted. Instead of the wireless carrier choosing what software goes on their phones, users would be free to put any software they want on it.
Google believes that the cost of voice calls and data connections to the Internet may be partly subsidized by advertisements brought to users by Google's powerful online advertising machine.
That vision, according to several analysts, is the reason Google said yesterday that it would bid upward of $4.6 billion for a swath of the nation's airwaves..."
Ratatouille? SEE IT.
