Proving that they do much more than make awesome casserole dishes, Corning's men in lab coats have come up with fiber optic cable that's 100 times more flexible than current cable. This is a major boon to FTTH projects since the new material is now about as versatile as copper for in-home installations. It also means less chance of broken backbones. (Remember those broken fibers in Provo last winter?) There's no word on availability, but since Verizon has been pushing for the updated technology and they're expanding FIOS aggressively, I'm betting on sooner rather than later.
Nothing that I know of. If you know of something upcoming, drop me a line so I can get it posted.
