  • "Google Fiber's Next Stop: Austin, Texas." Thus temporarily read a page on the Google Fiber site, before getting removed. Meanwhile, "multiple City of Austin sources" tell local ABC affiliate KVUE Google's (GOOG) Tuesday event will indeed be about a Fiber launch. It's safe to assume local ISPs Verizon and Time Warner Cable aren't pleased. [View news story]
    What I have observed in KC is a lot of new fiber being installed. I think most "dark" fiber was run from city-to-city, so it's not located where it is needed.

    It's fiber to each home. KC KS had the advantage of offering city-owned utility poles to string the fiber, and KC MO was a natural extension of service, although it will be a combo of buried and strung fiber-- we're anticipating installation in our KCMO "fiber hood" this Summer.

  • Costco: Membership Fees Account for 15% of Retailer's Stock Price [View article]
    With the Executive Membership you get an American Express card that entitles you to a 3% discount on gas at Costco (plus discounts on dining/other expenses paid for with the card), and an annual rebate based on 1% of total purchases on the card in the form of a coupon that can be used at Costco, plus a Costco rebate on total purchases of 2%, so the $100 for an average family is more than paid for with the rebates!
