Not to say anything definitive since I'm just dealing with a very small sample of firsthand data, but I've found older attachments download much slower than newer ones. I'll get 500+ KB/s on new attachments, and maybe 30 KB/s on ones that are a few months old. It wouldn't surprise me if they cache the newest items in a more-local manner, and let you pull from wherever in the cloud had space for them to store the old ones.

All cell phones don't use proprietary connectors. I've made it a point with my last two phones to get a model with a standardized USB connector for power and sync capabilities, so I can charge from any powered USB port I can find. I can't even count the number of times I've recharged my phone off my laptop while driving or on a train, or even at friend's houses by just making sure a common USB cable.

For a lot of local TV stations the newscasts are one of their most profitable things to air. Since they already have video, and it's a way to build familiarity with their brand, I can't see it likely a monopoly on news sites is possible. If a pay for site breaks a big story, there will always be free sites who will echo that story.
