A new ruling by the FCC requires wireless providers to negotiate roaming deals with competitors. This means that when you leave your carrier’s network, you would still receive data service using a competitor’s infrastructure. The FCC believes this will help create more competition and provide a better overall service. In other news, General Electric announced plans to build the largest solar panel plant in the United States. The location of the plant is currently unknown, but it will produce enough solar panels to generate 100 megawatts of electric power for customers. GE’s goal is to become a leader in inexpensive, but powerful solar technology. And finally, do you miss playing all the old school Atari games? Atari released an app for the iPhone that will let you play 100 of its classic games. You get to play Pong for free and $14.99 will buy you the other 99 games.
