Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Disappearing Act? Regulatory Checklists Are No Way To Promote Competition

The stock symbols (BEL), (GTE), and (USW) disappeared from existence on Monday as the Bell Atlantic-GTE and Qwest-US West mergers were finalized. The mergers give hope that section 271 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act will meet a similar fate soon.

CSE's very own Uncle Sam had fun with youth activists outside an Alan Keyes event. The group had put together a "Mosh Pit", hoping to get candidate Keyes to jump into the pit. When they saw CSE Uncle Sam they started chanting for him to take the dive!

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Regulation Before Deliberation in the Privacy Debate

As the weeks progress, the distinction between the political factions in the so-called privacy debate continues to fade. Both the House Government Reform Committee’s mark-up of H.R. 4049, “The Privacy Commission Bill,” and a recent ZDNet News interview with Gov. George W. Bush (R-Texas) have signaled that Republicans may be unwilling to defend consumers’ ability to engage in information-sharing arrangements.

Easley ads OK, auditor decides

BY Matthew Eisley

The state auditor said Thursday that state Attorney General Mike Easley's use of television public-service announcements over the past two years was acceptable under state laws and regulations. Easley's Democratic and Republican opponents in this year's governor's race criticized the attorney general, saying he used more than $ 1 million in advertisements since 1993 to promote his political career. Easley faces Republican Richard Vinroot and Libertarian Barbara Howe in the fall governor's race.

Firm Oracle hired to investigate Microsoft tried to sift garbage

Oracle's Larry Ellison said Wednesday his goal behind investigating Microsoft's funding of sympathetic lobbying groups --- first reported late Tuesday night --- was to expose the software giant's "covert" activities. However, the chief executive said he was unaware until Tuesday that Oracle had hired an investigative firm and did not know the firm had attempted to go through the advocacy groups' garbage. "Do I take responsibility? Absolutely," Ellison said Wednesday. "I authorized them to investigate Microsoft's activities" and approved a budget for the effort.
