    Today is probably not the best day to find out you owe $2,500 in back taxes, receive a letter notifying you of your late rent payment, or even going out to spend money on a beer if you find yourself a new ex-Alltel/Verizon acquired employee. Though crying in your beer may be the only thing that makes you feel better. I must stress however that crying in good beer is a travesty -- meaning a lesser beer is a more desirable tear collector. What constitutes a good beer? Anything that has "light"...

    If Boy Genius's little birdie is singing a truthful song, March 5th will be the date of release for the Treo Pro on Alltel's network.  The launch of the "all-new" Treo Pro so close to the Pre is sure to mean that many people will be holding out for the Pre launch at which point they will either pick one up or switch to Sprint (that's a change) in order to get a piece of iconic Palm history in the making.  The price for the already outdated Pro will lighten your wallet to the tune of $199 (...

    Verizon has finally completed their merger with Alltel making them the largest (by subscriber base) carrier in the U.S. with 83.7 million customers.  The total dent in Verizon's wallet comes in the form of $5.9 billion for Alltel's equity, and $22 billion net of cash.  Over the next couple of months as the networks are integrated, Verizon is telling Alltel customers that nothing needs to be done on their end.  Alltel's GSM will continue being served, and Alltel customers can call Verizon ...

    Yes, the time is finally coming folks.  All the i's have been dotted, t's crossed, and red tape cut.  Verizon and Alltel are coming to the end of their long acquisition ordeal.  The marriage will cost Verizon mere pocket change totaling $5.9 billion in up front cash as well as taking on Alltel's equally minuscule debt of $22.9 billion.  This sacred marriage will give Verizon the crown as biggest wireless carrier in the U.S. with a customer base of some 78 million people, quite a number...
