SAN FRANCISCO, January 3, 2007 (PodTech News) — The finalized merger of BellSouth and AT&T included an unprecedented agreement with serious implications for network neutrality. Also, security issues set the year off to a jittery start, with a short-lived malware virus and a short-lived Gmail vulnerability. The holiday season closed out with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 ahead of its gaming console rivals. Those stories, and a Stat of the Day. It’s PodTech News.

Reporter’s Notes:
