DTAs to get spicy with EBIF; Google loses political support

> Vanilla digital terminal adapters (DTAs) could get a second--hell, really a first--life as something more than channel changers if Evolution Broadband's plans work. The company wants to use EBIF as a way to juice up DTAs' base architecture so third party software developers could write apps for the analog-to-digital boxes. So says LightReading Cable, at least. Story.

> Politicians can be so fickle. Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) used to count California Congresswoman Anna Eshoo among its very favorite elected officials. Now she's gone and attacked the search engine's net neutrality proposal with Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and, even worse, grumbled that the adult Google is just not as cute as the child. "You can't just grow up and have a huge hoof and then be able to squash anyone that's coming up," she said. Story.

> In a sign that cable companies are actually making good inroads into the commercial services space, analyst firm Frost & Sullivan has presented Cablevision Systems (NYSE: CVC) Optimum Lightpath the Vertical Market Penetration Leadership of the Year award for demonstrating excellence in capturing healthcare segment market share. News release.

> Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) has launched its High-Speed 2go data service to interested subscribers in the Boston area as part of a bundle of Internet, phone and television products. News release.

And finally... Here's an answer to a question on everyone's mind: yes, Pace has received financing to go ahead and buy 2Wire. You can return to your normal programming. Story.
