+ Mayor Gavin Newsom is going to shed light on San Francisco’s free wifi plans at a press conference tomorrow. You can get the details over at Business 2.0 Blog.

+ Agilent makeover continues. A lot of people think HP is the real HP. Not… its a shame to see Agilent, the old school HP go through so much pain.

+ Spotted Blinkx co-founder Suranga Chandratillake hurrying down California Street looking very spiffy. When asked about the rumors about News Corp buying his little start-up, he said, “No Comment.” Body language said otherwise.

I’m taking bets on how long it will take SBC to toss anti-muni-wifi bills in the california legislature. My guess is that within a week of the announcement SBC will be on record poo-pooing it and within 6 weeks there will be a bill of some sort trying to take away the cities ability to do this.

Any takers?
