It's too short a season to grapple with so harsh a critique of this minor a transgression.

Sorry. I guess that was a bit like scratching a chalkboard, but I personally rather like this particular grammatical construct. It's efficient and it front loads the subjective point the author is trying to make, making comprehension easier. Compare: "The season is too short to grapple with a critique that's so harsh of a transgression that's this minor."

ITU Rules That WiMax, LTE Don't Qualify As 4G 137

GMGruman writes "It's official: All those ads and vendor claims about 4G services being offered today or being right around the corner are fiction. The international standards body ITU has ruled that Clearwire's WiMax network and the LTE systems that Verizon and others are just starting to roll out are not in fact 4G services. Oops."
