Wednesday's CNET Update wants to break free:
FreedomPop offers free home broadband
Freedom Pop is offering 1GB of free home Internet service every month with purchase of its router, which costs $90. Those that stream video or need more data can upgrade to 10GB for $10 a month, or pay-as-you-go for $5 a gigabyte. The service uses Clearwire's 4G WiMAX network. Free home Internet service can shake up the broadband industry, much like Skype changed the voice industry.
Also in today's news roundup:
- Facebook added new ways to access privacy settings.
- Microsoft's Surface tablet is now sold at Best Buy and Staples.
- Photos and video of what looks like the new BlackBerry phone have been posted online.
- Flickr wants a piece of the photo-filter-sharing action and has revamped its iPhone app.
