Wonkblog: What's at stake in San Francisco's fight over how to legalize Airbnb

Airbnb rentals in the company's home city of San Francisco have never exactly been legal. Local law - as is the case in many cities - technically bans residents from renting out private homes for less than 30 days, a time window where the practice starts to look less like subletting and a lot more like running a hotel.

la TV stations free up airwaves for wireless broadband

An effort to free up some of the airwaves used by TV broadcasts and make them available for wireless broadband took a big step forward this week in the U.S. Two TV stations in Los Angeles, KLCS and KCET, have agreed to share a single frequency to deliver their programming, freeing up a channel that can be auctioned off to wireless carriers next year. The change, which the Federal Communications Commission calls "repackaging," is possible because digital TV broadcasts don't need the full 6MHz of broadcast spectrum that was used for analog TV.
