Clearwire, a follow-up

The Tracy Press, reports that Clearwire plans to use the smaller of the old water towers. The coverage map does not quite match, but perhaps it's just not up to date.

Also, I have a report that Clearwire's modem is a transparent bridge, like a cable modem. So, Mac and Linux users do not have to dedicate a Windows system just to driving of the modem. Joy!

In not so rosy news, I just came across a report that Clearwire does the same trick as Verizon, that is, establishes a restrictive TOS which makes the service useless. The particular case is VoIP, but I have grave concerns about BitTorrent.
