All those fancy slabs sneaking their way through federal inspection take their toll, and the friendly folks at the FCC are starting to feel it. According to an official statement from the Federal Communications Commission, it’s receiving applications for more wireless device authorizations than ever before, and it’s exhausting its pool of identification codes.
