Some interesting tidbits, or "wishful thinking" by the author of this article, including this gem:

Verizon will buy DirecTV; AT&T takes EchoStar.
Here’s something that will happen not this year, but in 2010. Frustrated by the costs associated with rolling out video (it’s expensive to build a fiber plant), Verizon and AT&T believe that the only way to truly compete with cable companies is by picking up the two satellite players.


Here's the link.
