  Google invests in broadband company
Google, Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Hearst have invested (collectively) up to $100 million in Broadband over Power Line (BPL) company Current Communications Group. While right now, Current is a BPL provider only in Cincinnati, thre have been talks that they're looking to expnad by buying other utility companies. What's cool about BPL is that since it runs through your power lines, you don't have to do any extra cabeling and it turns any device plugged into a wall socket, a web-enabled device. Oh, and it's 1.5 tiomes faster than cable too :)
