There was an interesting piece in Macworld yesterday, in which cellular industry vet John Stanton relates how Steve Jobs thought about building a national WiFi network last decade so Apple could provide an alternative to the cellular carriers. It got me thinking about a story I did in 07, below, about how Jobs had also considered investing a few billion on licensed spectrum in a big government auction. That would have enabled Apple to compete with the carriers at their own game, with its own cellular network. I'll admit it seemed far-fetched at the time, but maybe Jobs was more serious about taking on the "orifices" (as he once called carriers) than we knew. By the way, Apple had a paltry $15 billion or so in the bank back then. Now it has more than $80 billion. Just saying...
Steve Jobs & Co. consider joining the FCC's auction of wireless spectrum, and a win would give Apple many intriguing options—for the iPhone and more.
