Google, etc. drop $100m on broadband over power lines

Listen up, Google's sick of you slowing up their operations with your dialup service, making their servers wait around to send the results of the 800 searches you each perform every day. So they're stepping it up by dropping $100 million into Current Communications Group, LLC (along with The Hearst Corporation, and Goldman Sachs), who are apparently England's biggest broadband over powerline company. Take that, NetZero.
