NetWorksGo radio from Tivoli supports portable WiFi and internet radioTivoli Audio seems to be coming out of their shell some by breaking from their traditional, mostly-AM/FM radio products into integrating digital music and internet radio with two new devices coming to the market this fall.

Both radios will drop the AM tuner, retaining only the FM radio and add in the ability to stream in MP3, WMA and Real Audio internet radio to playback through the device with no computer required. They can also optionally connect to a networked computer or through a USB connection to play music from a PC or other device.

The La Fontenna antenna runs $20 by itself, but you can get it bundled with the FON wireless router for only …

Wi-Fi Distance Record Set at 382 km

Posted in News,Wi-Fi by Reuben Drake on June 18th, 2007

Wi-Fi longest distance record set at 382 kilometersA researcher in Venezuela recently set a record for the longest Wi-Fi communication at 382 kilometers (almost 238 miles) breaking a previous Swedish record of 310 km. Using some special long-range Wi-Fi equipment from Intel along with some off-the-shelf parts Ermanno Pietrosemoli was able to make the connection and transfer data at a rate of 3 megabits per second.

A few other factors aside from special equipment attributed to the long distance achieved in this record connection. The two points were both on mountain tops so there were no trees or buildings to obstruct the signal. Also, the equipment that was used employed “directed” signals to transfer that data instead of sending it in all directions like a conventional home Wi-Fi transmitter, which helps increase the distance.

The report did not state exactly what type of data was being transferred from one …

WiFi iPod From Apple This Year?

Posted in iPod,Wi-Fi by Darrin Olson on April 14th, 2007

WiFi iPodAccording to a recent report from DigiTimes, Apple has plans to launch a WiFi enabled iPod that could be available to ship by Q3 of this year.

The report states that as soon as this month Universal Scientific Industrial (USI) will be shipping the components that will make the WiFi capabilities possible to Foxconn, who will then assemble the new device. Foxconn would then have enough of the devices assembled and ready to go by the 3rd quarter of this year, which would mean that these new WiFi iPods would be ready to go in plenty of time for the holiday rush.

This seems to makes sense for Apple to do in order to stay competitive with the Zune and its WiFi capabilities. There has also been rumors that Sony and Samsung are preparing a WiFi enabled DAP, and Sandisk has already shown offer a similar device. One …

Don’t Encrypt, Just Repaint

Posted in Paint,Security,Wi-Fi by Chetz on March 31st, 2007

EM-SEC paint blocks WiFi from leaving the roomIt’s the perfect product for people that can’t figure out how to set up their own personal encrypted network. EM-SEC Technologies has the solution to those technically-challenged folk: just paint your home with the EM-SEC Coating System and your wireless network is secure. People inside can still access the network but anyone attempting to access it from outside won’t be able to because of what’s on your walls.

The EM-SEC paint works like this: the paint uses a series of water-based shielding products that restrict the passage of airborne RF signals, thus blocking the transmission of the frequency from your hub or modem. Naturally this kind of technological breakthrough was at first designed to shield government and military centers and protect their sensitive data streams but now private business and non-geek home owners can get in on the …

Wireless internet users rise to one third

Posted in News,Services,Wi-Fi by Darrin Olson on February 26th, 2007

Study shows that one third of US surfers have used wireless connectionsA recent and interesting study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project has shown that 34% of people that surf the internet in the US have logged in using a wireless connection at one point or another. This percentage includes people using WiFi or cell phone networks at home or at work along with anywhere else, through a PC, laptop or any handheld device.

The study goes even further to investigate what these wireless …

BLU:sens G14 MP3 player with wifi and allows sharing of songsBLU:sens is unveiling an MP3 player called the G14 which has some significant features that should bring it a little attention in the PMP world. What makes this player extra special is that the attention is not due to them copying someone else’s design.

The BLU:sens G14 supports WiFi and has no DRM. Individually these two items have their own significance, but combined they equate to wireless sharing of MP3 files between players without restrictions. This will no doubt catch the eye of the Microsoft Zune team, where the Zune only allows the sharing of approved record labels.

The overall look and additional features of the G14 aren’t too shabby either, as it supports Bluetooth along with the WiFi, as well as DivX, MP3, WMA and OGG and it sports a 2 inch 256K color display. …
