Alas, Teledesic is a casualty of the Internet boom-and-doom. Along with Orbcomm and Iridium, this puppy went bust. I guess we can be glad that it remained a private company to the end, and therefore took no public shareholder money with it.

Ouch Bill Gates! :)

Enjoy the Fool... (and hope you enjoyed the book)...
