Zarf writes: Google praises the FCC vote to allow the use of White Space spectrum for wifi. White Space spectrum for those who don't know is the intentionally unused spectrum between TV stations. The NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) argues that using the previously untouched white space regions of the spectrum will degrade TV signals. The use of this additional spectrum will allow for more wifi services. Larry Page calls the white space broadband technology "Wi-Fi on steroids!" I personally welcome our super-buffed white-space spectrum overlords.
