Ever since Google messed up the FCC approval for the Nexus Player, the tech world seems to have gotten a slight obsession about monitoring the arrival of Nexus devices at the government agency.

T-Mobile complains about low-band spectrum auction

T-Mobile CEO John Legere talks a lot of smack. On stage, he’s a cyclone of cursing and boasting, snide remarks about the competition, as well as a complainer and apologist for T-Mobile.
