    High-speed internet on high-speed trains

    Shinkansen by Bistrosavage When I was in Sweden last year, I enjoyed the fact that the rail service taking me from Malmö to Linköping offered WiFi on the trains, utilizing a combination of satellite, 3G and GSM for the uplink. I didn’t end up using it, choosing instead to sleep, but it was a reassuring feeling to know that I could Twitter my heart out should the feeling strike me in the… Read More

    QuickerTek releases high-powered Wi-Fi ExpressCard

    The QuickerTech ExpressCard is a 802.11n/g ExpressCard with the honkingest antenna in all the land. It works with most MacBook Pros – they tell you to basically remove your Apple AirPort card, which is a tall order, but whatevs – and costs $199. I’m a big fan of external Wi-Fi devices. I’ve used the HawkingTech USB Wi-Fi card for years and adding a massive antenna to OS… Read More

But a high performance WiFi system certainly does have its uses. The company has their signal technologies installed in nationwide… Read More

The projector itself is fairly middle-of-the-road spec-wise, with 1080i/720p HD support, DLP, a 2000:1 contrast ratio, and standard digital inputs like HDMI and DVI. What’s remarkable about it is the integrated WiFi with built-in MPEG decoding. We’re guessing it mounts like AppleTV… Read More
