Google, Verizon Set Pact:

Google (GOOG) and Verizon (VZ) have reportedly negotiated an agreement on how to handle Web traffic that may result in higher charges to consumers, several news sources reported Wednesday. The agreement, expected within days, comes as the Federal Communications Commission is trying to get major Internet content firms, such as Google, and network service providers, such as Verizon, to strike a deal on disputed points of so-called net neutrality rules. Critics argue that the companies' agreement and the meetings are giving giant Internet firms too great a say in the future of how consumers access the Web. Separately, as DailyFinance's Amey Stone reports, Google said Wednesday on its blog that it is halting development of Google Wave, citing slow adoption. When introduced in May 2009, Wave was thought to be a breakthrough technology that combined elements of live chat and real-time document sharing.

I saw this on the news in the UK and the guy from Google was to slimy for words.
The Google "spokesman" was more interested in doing a Google info-mercial than answering the reporter's questions.
