If you’re a resident of Hong Kong, you can enjoy a 1,000-megabit Internet connection for less than $26 a month. In comparison, Verizon offers one-twentieth the service for over five times the price. China’s telecomm companies are taking 7 years of losses for infrastructure in the early stages of building. In other news, police are using social networking to help them investigate crimes. Cops are turning to Facebook and Twitter in order to discover motives and have been successful solving crimes using publically posted information. A recent murderer in NYC was charged after a Facebook post to the victim was found. And finally, Google used a remote software nuke to remove virus-infected programs from Android owners’ phones. It’s only the second time Google has used the ability to access users’ phones to remove malicious software. Both times were done as a security measure to protect user data from being compromised.
