  • Fujitsu Developing True Wireless Charging System

    While there’s been other attempts to create a truly convenient wireless charging solution, not all of them have been successful. Most require that your device be in physical contact with a charging station, which while more convenient then plugging a device in, can still be a pain to remember. Fujitsu is working on a system that doesn’t require a physical connection at all, and… Read More

  • Asus WX-Lamborghini Mouse Rolls Through FCC

    Asus just had a new Lamborghini labeled product get approved by the FCC, for better or worse. The new mouse joins an already varied and colorful line of ill-advised products. I mean, really? Who buys a Lamborghini licensed mouse or laptop? If you own the car, you probably buy something a bit more high end, and if don’t have the car, you shouldn’t use one. It’s like the Ferrari… Read More

  • HP Wireless TV Connect Streams Video To Your HDMI Laptop

    HP announced more then just laptops tonight, but this product is a bit of and odd man out. For whatever reason they’ve decided to come out with a wireless media streaming box. Makes sense, until you start reading up on exactly how it works. The video does stream at 1080p, so that’s cool; but after that, it just gets strange. Read More

  • PogoPlug drops the cable, and the price

    I’m a big fan of PogoPlug devices. They’re super simple to use, and they’re pretty regularly updated with new features based on customer input. One of the most common customer requests is for a wireless PogoPlug model, so that you don’t need to locate the PogoPlug near your wireless router. Today that request is being (mostly) answered with a new 802.11 b/g/n… Read More

  • Et tu, Nokia?

    In the US we have a somewhat myopic view of cell phones. We have iPhones and Blackberrys and now Androids and Nexuses for smartphones, and a whole bunch of feature phones from manufacturers like LG and Motorola and Samsung. Notably absent from most wireless stores in the U.S. are Nokia, which is odd since Nokia owns more of the global cell phone market than its next three competitors combined. Read More

    A school district in Arizona has outfitted one of its school buses with a $200 mobile 3G Wi-Fi router and $60-per-month access. And guess what? Instead of punching each other and yelling all the way to school, the kids quietly tap, tap, tap away on their laptops. Read More

  • Review: Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Wireless Speaker System

    The Short Version: You’ll be hard pressed to find a higher fidelity desktop audio rig than this. But the wireless capability is rather limited in its application, and the price runs a little high for a 2.1 system. Read More

  • The InFocus DisplayLink Wireless system cuts the cord between Macs and InFocus projectors

    One of the most frustrating things about using a projector is setting up all the cords. You have to connect the video, probably the audio (at least in a business setting) and get the whole thing up and running. If you have a Mac, life gets even more complicated due to the lack of an HDMI or DVI port, which is the industry standard for projectors. InFocus is fixing all that with their new… Read More

    The future will be wireless. That’s what they keep saying, anyway.

  • Verizon jumps on prepaid data bandwagon

  • Nintendo considering adding Kindle-like wireless access to future DS

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the Amazon Kindle the first device to launch with built-in wireless (that is, cellular data) access? You know, you pay for the device, and then you don’t have to pay monthly wireless access because it’s already included in the cost of the device? It’s pretty neat, I think I can say without too much grief, and is a model… Read More
