STLR Link Roundup – November 27, 2009

The latest on the STLR radar:

  • Verizon stakes its claim as the nation’s most ironic network: A week after a court called its “There’s a Map For That” advertisements “sneaky,” but not misleading (catch up here), Verizon has pushed the National Advertising Division of the Council of Better Business to ask Sprint to drop its claim that it is the “most dependable 3G network.”
    • A Kentucky man’s claim that the government has been spying on his every living moment is “patently unsubstantial,” according to the D.C. Circuit.  Wired’s Threat Level reports and links the full decision, in which the court likens “the particular combination of sloth, fanaticism, inanity and technical genius alleged” to stories of “little green men.”
