    Politically-connected LightSquared Pushes Wireless Internet Plan despite
    GPS Interference Concerns
    http://www.thecuttingedgenews.com/index.php?article=52446

    "When the Federal Communications Commission granted LightSquared Inc.
    expedited approval to launch a new wireless Internet service, some
    powerful voices in Washington expressed alarm, including the Pentagon
    and one-third of the U.S. Senate.

    "LightSquared’s bold $14 billion plan, its detractors said, could
    cripple Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) systems and threaten aviation
    safety, disrupt military and rescue operations, and interfere with
    high-tech farming equipment and the everyday navigation devices used by
    millions".
