All this wireless technology must have some horrible effect on the human body at some point down the line....
|"Science news reports that in Europe, a Breakthrough For Post-4G Communications has been announced. A public-private consortium known as IPHOBAC, has been developing new communications technology that is near commercialization now. From the article, "With much of the mobile world yet to migrate to 3G mobile communications, let alone 4G, European researchers are already working on a new technology able to deliver data wirelessly up to 12.5Gb/s.|
"The technology â€" known as 'millimetre (mm)-wave' or microwave photonics â€" has commercial applications not just in telecommunications (access and in-house networks) but also in instrumentation, radar, security, radio astronomy and other fields."
That's great for Europe, but here in the US, I suspect that patent interests will try to stymie the adoption of such technology until they can get exclusive control of it here."

Well to be kind, it's good for web browsing and that's about it.
I had a plan to stick a PC in my car with HSDPA broadband for net radio but it's just not stable enough.

granted it can be a major pain sometimes an feel like smashing the modem sometimes (i did that once too lol). but overall their good.
