June 5 Roundup

Today's "Huh?" moment is supplied by BusinessWeek's Tech Beat blog, which states Allen Nogee at In-Stat thinks Qualcomm might want to scoop up troubled Amp'd to use the MVNO as a "testing ground for new services." Qualcomm is an investor already and I guess it makes sense at some level, but does Qualcomm really want to alienate all of their other "partners" who aren't currently pissed at them?
