Cingular/AT&T Wireless Merger

For those interested in playing the Cingular/AT&T Wireless Merger Home Game, the FCC has made it easy by providing a web page devoted to the merger. It includes a pretty cool 180-day timeline which currently indicates that we're at Day 22 and everything is "green."

Ok. I wanna be the shoe. Is that one already taken?

Nope. So far, I've taken the top hat and the rest of the pieces are open. So the shoe is yours.

I call dibs on the car!

Seriously, though: how is this a monopoly? Last I checked, there were at least three other wireless companies in more or less direct competition.

It's not a monopoly. Far, far from it -- there are like 11 wireless companies in the nationwide market, with at least 3 of them considered "big."

I'm just interested in it since I work for AT&T Wireless and hope to still have a job when Cingular finishes the takeover.

Now would probably be a great time to brush up the ol' résumé. And maybe find a headhunter.

For software developers, it's always a good time to brush up the resume. And it's always good to have contacts with a couple of headhunters.

That's not to say that my resume is completely up-to-date.... But it's close.
