  4. Clearwire announced its affordable 4G pay-as-you-go broadband service.  Clearwire projects that by year-end it will have built out a WiMAX network that spans all major U.S. markets.  With Apps. increasing with the number of devices using them and developers developing them, content that’s not accessible through them may become ‘lost’ to those who prefer the one touch access instead of typing http://www . . . .
