Some good news for those looking forward to 4G technologies being rolled out and the increased coverage and faster speeds it will bring. The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in the USA today has created a new "shot clock" rule that will make it a requirement for all requests to add equipment to existing cell sites to be approved within 90 days and 150 for applications for new cell sites. Currently, the process can take anywhere up to a year which greatly increases the cost of setting up the cell site.
There had been media speculation that the requirement to even put in a request for additional equipment on an existing cell site would be removed but it looks like the FCC stopped short of doing this which is a shame as generally, the majority of these requests get approved anyway unlike applications for new cell sites.

For a long while I have been considering building a computer for inside my car being somebody who likes to fiddle with the latest technology.
Car Computers are not a new thing and have been around since the 90s in various forms but have really become popular in the last 4-5 years with smaller motherboards such as the Mini-ITX small size low power form factor becoming available.
The main advantage of building a Car Computer is that you can combine a lot of things such as music stored on the computer's disk drive, satellite navigation, phone hands free, an email client that reads out your email as you drive, etc all into the one unit.
