LightSquared is in full back-pedal on their GPS interference issue, which is the point of the title of this post.
Backstory: when I was young and my heart was an open book, I used to enjoy Rocky and Bullwinkle.
Rocky and Bullwinkle normally (always?) closed their episodes with a teaser for the next session which often included multiple bad puns. I’ve been told the pun is the lowest form of humor but since I’m not sure how humor is measured, I don’t really hold to such a position myself.
So this is a tribute post title (to Rocky and Bullwinkle) on a space topic (LightSquared and GPS). And in further tribute, ponder if a new LightSquared slogan/naming convention needed like “The first full-fail 4G network” or “SkyJam.”
The LightSquared front-man, Phil Falcone, judged the subprime mortgage mess correctly and ended up making a fortune. Can LightSquared do the same?
