Hands on with the Verizon Wireless Broadband laptop card

I picked one of these up today to test out just how fast this nationwide
“wireless DSL” internet service from Verizon really is. More to come!

MobiBLU’s new video player lets you pay your subway fare with RFID

30 11 2005


I love my mobiBLU 1500 (one inch cubed) mp3 player. I can’t go a single day on the subway without someone asking me about it. Now they’ve come out with a new contender in the form of the picture/video playing MobiBLU 1800. Aside from a ‘I’m cooler than you’ form factor, it’s got a new killer app. They’ve integrated a RFID chip into it. This means you can fill up the player with money (sort of like you do with pre-paid cell phones) and use the player as your e-wallet to pay for various things. In Korea, you can simply walk past the subway turnstiles and the MobiBLU automagically deducts your fare from your balance, all while stowed out of sight in your pocket. The future is now! (in Korea).

New Orleans to get city wide free WiFi !

29 11 2005


I can’t believe the big corporations (Verizon, SBC, TimeWarner) haven’t crushed this initiative with an iron fist. Maybe they haven’t heard about it yet and soon will… It’s an awesome plan. Free city wide wireless Internet access for the entire city of New Orleans. Mayor Nagin is pushing the initiative to help spur economic growth for the devastated city. How long until corporate greed squashes this just like it has in countless other communities and states (Philly, Salt Lake City, etc) ?
