    The Solo Tabletop RF-Armor from Revolabs is a high-end wireless microphone system using 1.92 to 1.93 GHz for its radio transmissions, with enhanced shielding which allows it “to operate cleanly even when in direct contact with all wireless electronic devices known to cause unwanted audio interference, such as GSM mobile phones, smart phones, etc.”  The base station connects to your… Read More

  • Tiny AT&T Quicksilver USB modem looks thumbdrive-y

    At first glance, you might mistake this doodad on the left for an ordinary, run-of-the-mill thumbdrive. Don’t be fooled! It’s a 3G modem from AT&T called the USBConnect Quicksilver. If you’re a weakling, you’ll love this thing because it weighs less than an ounce. Everyone, and I mean everyone, can lift one ounce, so less than one once should be a… Read More

  • Onkyo has wireless headphones for the iPod now

    Tired of the tyranny of headphone wires when listening to “Headphone Silence” on your iPod 200 times in a row? Who isn’t! Lucky for you there’s Onkyo’s MHP-UW2, a pair of unfortunately named wireless headphones that operate on the 2.4GHz frequency. You have to plug a receiver into the bottom of your iPod in order for it to work, but once that’s out of the… Read More

  • Griffin Airbase: the first Airport range extender designed specifically for the foolish and credulous


    The problem with radio waves is that they just can’t seem to pass through things. That’s why I maintain a direct line of sight to my wireless router at all times — even when I’m not using it! And with this range extender for my Airport Express, now I can make my router higher up and more visible in the room — because that’s why I bought a wireless… Read More

  • Sharp builds the world's first mobile phone with built-in car key

    Nissan‘s proprietary “Intelligent Key” technology will soon be built into a mobile phone, which is produced by Sharp and, at this point, unfortunately Japan-only. The Japanese car company’s key system is already used in over 950,000 vehicles but now, drivers can wirelessly enter, exit and start their Nissans with the (yet to be named) Sharp phone. Reportedly, the device… Read More

  • New wireless mice and keyboard from HP – OMG a Ctrl-Alt-Del key!


    I didn’t have a good time with the last wireless keyboard/mouse combo I had, but I’m ready to try again. This keyboard has the most dumb/smart feature of all time, a Ctrl-Alt-Del key. That’s awesome. Yes, there are jokes to be made, but I use the task manager for more than killing crashed programs. Anyway, the keyboard also has a “rotary button,” commonly referred… Read More

  • World's smallest UWB developed by Ph.D. student

    Believe it or not, the image above is an UWB antenna and not some Stargate universe artifact. Taeyoung Yang, a Virginia Tech Ph.D. student, devised the idea of creating a ultra-wideband antenna as small as theoretically possible and this is it. The antenna boosts a 95% efficiency rating and the world’s smallest with a 10:1 bandwidth. Read More

  • Hands on with the Cy-fi. Looks nice. Sounds…

    …OK. Not the greatest sounding speaker of course, but you can use it outside. Or rather, you can keep it outside. It’s being marketed as a Bluetooth sports speaker, and with a compact water resistant form factor, I won’t argue. Besides look at it, all aerodynamic and shiny. I bet this thing can bike faster than I can. Comes is two versions, $179 for Cy-fi for Bluetooth and $199… Read More

  • Quick and dirty free airport web surfing trick

    Raise your hand if you like paying $10 or so for 24 hours of airport Internet access that you’re only going to use for 15 minutes. While I certainly wouldn’t suggest that you use this trick for endless, free web surfing on a for-pay wireless network, maybe your conscience would allow you to just quickly jump on to grab your e-mail or some music for your MP3 player before you… 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

  • Logitech launches wireless Z-500 speakers


    What’s there to say? These new Logitech speakers look slick, they’re wireless via an unobtrusive little dongle, and they claim 12 hours of battery life. Looks like you can charge them via USB. I’ve heard good things about the smaller Logitech speakers, so while I won’t expect to fill a room with these things, they might be nice for… I don’t know, picnics. Read More

So far only Windows XP and Vista users need apply, but for those that do, IOGEAR… Read More

  • Kensington’s wireless USB hub with DVI port

    For about the price of a docking station, you could just skip the whole docking part altogether, assuming Kensington’s new Wireless USB Docking Station works as advertised. The device costs $229.99 and features a DVI port, five USB 2.0 ports, and an audio out jack. It can handle monitors up to 1680×1050. It appears to be simple enough to operate, too.

    Those of you Appleheads hankering for an enhanced wireless keyboard but not impressed by the offerings of more Mac-friendly companies will be happy to hear that what is possibly the world’s sexiest keyboard is coming in a Mac Edition now.

  • Review: Soundcast OutCast Wireless Speaker


    Everyone wants to have parties outside, music thumping under the sun. It just feels classy. Plus you get to show your neighbors how many friends you have. Thing is, most boom boxes turn to breathless junk as soon as they’re outside and, between wiring and weather proofing, rigging up a high-quality speaker solution outdoors is a bit past the average consumer. The $699 OutCast speaker… Read More
