|06.22.04 - 06.23.04 Text Messages &
Cell phone text messages could some day be as important
in criminal trials as DNA evidence is now — and the
Kobe Bryant (search) rape case might be the first
major test. A private cell-phone text message exchange
between the basketball star’s accuser and her ex-boyfriend
has been ruled “relevant for discovery” in the case,
and Judge Terry Ruckriegle (search) has ordered it
released to the defense and prosecution.
The judge also told attorneys not to talk about
the contents of the messages, which were subpoenaed
by the defense last October.

PageGate can be integrated with existing applications
to add messaging or paging functionality to existing
software. The most common use is to monitor networks
and notify administrators of outages or network problem
or security problems. This allows tech support and
maintenance staff to work remotely about the campus.
Messages can be sent from workstations on a network,
or customers can send messages to agents via web pages
or e-mail accounts. This software is modular and can
be scaled to meet the size of the University.

|06.16.04 - 06.17.04 Verizon E911 Issues
E911 is a hot issue with everyone from folks in
the wireless sector to the federal government, so
when a glitch hits emergency calls, it attracts attention.
Verizon Wireless has been alerted to a "handful" of
calls that have hiccupped during 911 calls placed
by some of its subscribers.
The glitch has occurred when the caller location
technology used by Verizon Wireless attempts to communicate
with GPS to determine a caller's location. "The good
news is, the calls remain fully connected," Verizon
Wireless spokesman Jeffery Nelson tells news@2. "The
issue is with a handful customers, who are in a Phase
II capable area and have a GPS-enabled phone, that
are in a location where it is difficult for the phone
to connect with the satellite," he says. The customers
are experiencing some voice-in and voice-out problems,
which means the voice blanks a few seconds to find
the satellite, but it doesn't lose the transmission.
"No calls have been lost," Nelson says.

|06.09.04 - 06.11.04 Nextel / Verizon
The FCC may have put off any decision on what to
do with in the jumbled 800 MHz band, but the move
seems to have turned up the heat among opponents who
remain at odds on the issue. The latest: Nextel Communications
and Verizon Wireless continued to duke it out this
week in hopes of swaying the FCC to their point of
view. On Friday, Nextel offered up an additional two
MHz of 800 MHz spectrum to give to public safety.
In a letter to the FCC, Nextel senior vice president
Robert Foosaner said the move would "nearly double
the amount of 800 MHz band spectrum Nextel would contribute
to public safety under the Consensus Plan to a total
of 4.5 MHz -- a nearly 50 percent increase over today's
public safety 800 MHZ allocation of 10 MHz."
Nextel reinforced its latest proposal with another
follow-up letter to the commission yesterday. Verizon
Wireless vehemently opposed Nextel's latest proposal
in a biting letter of its own to the commission. "Nextel's
new proposal is far more beneficial to Nextel than
public safety," the letter said. The letter went on
to say that Nextel's new proposal does nothing to
ensure sufficient and legally sustainable funding
for solving the public safety interference. "Nextel
has not offered one additional cent to public safety,"
it says. (from Wireless Week)
