Sprint has dedicated a portion of its retail space in the Flatiron building in NYC to an installation art project meant to demonstrate their commitment to “environmental responsibility balancing technological development with green initiatives.”

The installation has an element of performance art in that artist Gwyneth Leech draws on used (but clean) paper cups and hangs them and encourages onlookers to make their own creations.  The performance of sorts takes place from 11-2p Monday to Friday through December 31st.  Leech’s creations are available for view on her blog, http://www.gynethleech.com.

As companies start loosening the purse strings on IT expenditures following recession, telecoms have made a few offering enhancements in an attempt to grab some of that cash.   Many have chosen to recommit themselves by offering virtual private networks, on-demand storage and connected devices.  Here are the highlights from the “Big 4.”

  • AT&T to launch multimillion-dollar marketing campaign specifically targeting large and small businesses.  The campaign includes a spot in the Super Bowl on Sunday.  The goal;  expand their base and raise awareness that their offering goes beyond personal use.
  • Verizon to purchase Terremark Worldwide for $1.4b to increase cloud service capabilities
  • T-Mobile USA released news of a new pay-per-use Int’l data and voice plan
  • Sprint – made a commitment to develop more connected devices for tracking packages and field personnel.
