On this week's EIC squared podcast Dan and I talk about the looming duopoly that's forming between AT&T Wireless and Verizon Wireless, Jerry Yang's prospects at Yahoo and next week's Steve Jobs' sermon.

First up, Verizon Wireless acquired Alltel for $28 million or so and now has 80 million subscribers to top AT&T Wireless' subscriber count. I wonder if this consolidation could force a merger of Sprint and T-Mobile?

Meanwhile, it's another week of Microhoo fodder. Carl Icahn blasts Yang. Yahoo fires back. And there's a class action lawsuit too. The fun never ends. Dan has some interesting thoughts on how this Yahoo thing developed. It's worth the price of admission.

And finally, we preview the Jobs keynote at the WWDC on Monday. On tap is a 3G iPhone, a Mac OS X update and more speculation than you can imagine. Are expectations too high?
