• Samsung S8500 becomes first Bluetooth 3.0 approved handset

    There is nothing more satisfying than claiming to be the first at anything, and so far this week, Samsung must be pretty happy with itself. After announcing its plans to mass produce AMOLED touchscreens, the first to include built-in touch functions, Samsung’s S8500 will be the first consumer handset to feature Bluetooth 3.0. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group, or SIG, has approved… Read More

  • Wireless EKG becoming a reality

    Everyone is familiar with the traditional EKG – you lie in the hospital bed, the leads connected to your body, and recording your heart rate and other vital statistics. But what if it was all wireless? What if you didn’t need to be in the hospital stuck in bed to be monitored? Read More

  • TSA To Save Print Media? No Electronics On International Flights? What A Joke.

    Before I begin, let me just state that TSA has yet to confirm any of this on its website, so the details aren’t entirely clear at the moment. That said, there are several indications that orders have been issued to cease the use of electronics during international flights. Yes, that means no laptops, no iPods, no Kindles, no CD players, no portable DVD players, no Nintendo DSes… Read More

  • Airport Wi-Fi users tend to be well-off, rich folk

    It’s a good time to be an airport Wi-Fi advertiser. According to a study just released by JiWire, the folks behind a lot of airport Wi-Fi, most people that use airport W-iFi are loaded and spend a good amount of time online while waiting for their flight. This means, of course, that Mr. Money Bags has plenty of time to click on the flashing banner ads that airport Wi-Fi generally sports. Read More

  • CerevoCam: New camera automatically uploads pictures to social media sites

    I just came back from the CNET Japan Innovation Conference 2009 [JP] in Tokyo, where Cerevo, currently one of the most ambitious tech start-ups in Japan, showed its self-developed digital camera aimed at heavy social media users for the first time. The company has just seven employees (two of them are part-timers) but big plans: Cerevo intends to dramatically simplify the process of uploading… Read More

  • White-Fi brings WiFi to unlicensed TV spectrum

    The terribly named “White-Fi” is a research effort to bring WiFi transmission to the unlicensed TV spectrum — the so-called “whitespace” (get it? White-Fi!) of TV channels in the UHF band . Big whoop, right? Well, with transmission ranges up to 1 kilometer, that actually is a pretty big deal. Mesh networking is also in the works. But most interesting of all are… Read More

  • WPA encryption cracked in under a minute

    Researchers in Japan have developed an attack against WiFi Protected Access when using the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) that can successfully break the encryption in less than a minute. If you’re using WPA with TKIP, switch to AES, or step up to WPA2. Read More

  • WiFi detecting cap detects WiFi, deflects funny, attractive people

    In the Old West a man was defined by his hat. Stetson, Ten-Gallon, and Bowler were only three of the myriad hats available to a real man and these hats often stank of pomade and sweat and were frequently infested with lice and caked in a fine crust of dandruff. The Old West totally sucked. Thank God we live in the New West because now, for $14, you can wear a WiFi detecting cap that shows… Read More

  • WiFi-enabled BlackBerry 8530 headed to VZW

    Hopefully Verizon has changed it tune for good on WiFi. Generally the carrier doesn’t allow WiFi-toting devices to be sold with a Verizon Logo affixed – there are a couple of small Winmo exceptions- but it seems that the BlackBerry 8530 will be 802.11 b/g enabled. Not only that, but it might be the first Verizon BlackBerry to come loaded with OS 5.0. Pricing or availability… Read More

  • Share your 3G connection over Wi-Fi with the LevelOne MobilSpot

    It’s now a tad easier to share a 3G connection thanks to the LevelOne MobilSpot Portable Wireless HotSpot. All the router requires is either a USB or Card Bus datacard and off it goes, sharing the EV-DO or HSDPA stream over Wi-Fi or out through Ethernet. It’s that easy, folks. LevelOne has also configured the router to work as a standard home router that’s compatible with… Read More

  • Wi-fi harshes hippies' buzz

    Glastonbury, England, renowned for its hippy culture and often thought to be the last resting place of King Arthur and/or The Holy Grail, is reportedly seeing an increase in minor health problems, like headaches, dizziness, rashes and even pneumonia. The cause of these illnesses? Nasty, filthy WiFi networking. No one ever got sick until the city rolled out a £34,000 WiFi network. Read More

  • 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… 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… Read More

  • Luxul Wireless Pro-WAV 100 signal booster

    Do you know how big of an area 10,000 square feet is? Big. Like almost two football fields big. Bigger than my apartment, for sure. So if I got this new Pro-WAV 100 from Luxul Wireless I could feed my entire city block WiFi signals. Not that I would want to mind you. But a high performance WiFi system certainly does have its uses. The company has their signal technologies installed in… Read More
