Google's tease in Kansas City is becoming irritating
The Kansas City Star
Remember the big deal Geraldo Rivera made in 1986 over the live TV special broadcast of the opening of Chicago gangster Al Capone’s secret vault? People were eagerly glued to their TV looking for a stash of cash or a vast wealth in liquor.
But what a bust that turned out to be. The vault was empty, and the broadcast was an international joke, too.
That’s the way that Google Inc.’s tease in the Kansas City area is starting to sound over the company picking this community roll out its ultra-high-speed Internet network. For more than a year, Google executives have promised that this fantastic service was going to revolutionize life in the heartland.
More news on “it’s coming” was released Wednesday with July 26 now being the date in which people will learn more about Google Fiber.
With all of the tease and hype, it sounds more like an empty vault is going to be opened to me.
