Uhh, my house settles because of the clay it is on. Solid stone? Really? We are widely on caliche. I have dug the fence posts to prove it. We are on top of limestone, about the easiest thing you can dig up. It crumbles.
IBM, National Instruments, Intel, Google, Apple, Dell, Rackspace, Hostgator, Data Foundry, Sematech, Spansion, Applied Semiconductor, Blizzard, EA, Microsoft, NCSoft, Bioware, Flextronics, 3M, Whole Foods, Oracle, you know, not much. But Houston did have Reliant.
Not really, Carmack is teaching NASA more than ever and making code changes to his software at the pad and actually building rockets. He says a modern game is far more complex, and Austin, not Houston has the game developers.
Time Warner is only offer 50Mbps, and if you are very lucky you can get 110Mbps Grande. I don't call that very high tech. I think you underestimate the extra cost of California in doing business versus in Texas.
Houston has no software development close to Austin. Oh wait, they gave us that horrible Aliens: Colonial Marines in Sugarland. Forgot about that one. If only they had Google Fiber it would have been better, then they just needed it Dallas so Gearbox could hook up.
Grande which is what my business has, along with ATT Uverse as a back up, and Time Warner which I have at home. And then ATT DSL. That is it for consumers.
Google is going strictly, and only by demand.
Are you kidding? You don't know Austin do you?
Wow, you guys have serious envy there don't you? And bored, maybe you should do some research the next time you post. You are clueless.
We have a ton of dark fiber in Austin, and people who can actually use it.
I have gone from Texas.net dial up, to Grande Enterprise class fiber, and been an early adopter the entire way. I certainly hope to get this for my business on Guadalupe, or my home in Allandale near 2222 and Shoal Creek. My sister can get Grande South of 2222 a 5 minute slow walk from my house. 7 years later they have not jumped 2222. South of 2222 you can get it Central, and I currently have Grande at my business Game Republik at 40th and Guadalupe in Hyde Park. I can also get Uverse there, but not at my home. I'll be tracking news of this as it happens in the same manner I have covered AMD since 98. I also worked at an ISP back in the late 90s, and got turned down by Time Warner to work in tech support upon graduation probably because I told the interviewer how bad their support was. Please if you have any Google fiber news in Austin send it my way. I in particular want a good roll out map. http://googlefiberatx.com/
