"Hey guys, I've been seeing commercials in my area for Clear, a company that offers cheap 4G mobile AND home internet. I assume they must be using the Sprint Network since they are the only carrier currently offering 4G. It seems almost too good to be true. Just wondering if you've heard anything from this company or if they might be part of the Virgin Mobile budget brand of Sprint.

"What I'm wondering about Google Instant is, all those Google Ads that show up WHILE you're typing... do those count as ad impressions? If so, that's a major disservice for the advertisers. I realize AdWords is mostly geared towards Cost Per Click bidding, but if nothing else, the stats analysis is going to be messed up quite a bit if it's telling Bob from Discount Pens Online Pen Outlet that their ad is being shown every time someone is TRYING to search for ""penis"". (Feel free to replace ""penis"" with ""Pennsylvania"" or something you would find that more radio friendly.)
