As believable as the story was it was total BS, but consider why it is believable. Kudos to Adam Curry for giving me the idea for the frequency auction and to Lance Ulanoff for reminding me that it was time for a good April Fools gag. I see he did one too at PC Mag.com.

Unfortunately in the Internet era these sorts of columns stay in play outside of the April 1 parameter. So if you are reading this in June…sorry.
