Wi-Fi Updates

Wi-Fi Networking News, always a trusted source for news about wireless networking, released two interesting bits of news last week.

First, GigaBeam is planning multi-gigabit wireless networking in Lower Manhattan. They are calling this “virtual fiber”. It will be using point-to-point technology operating in the 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz ranges. No prices have been announced yet, but I sure would love to have something like this in my apartment.

And second, an update on the progress of 802.11n. The short of this is that we should expect to see 802.11n devices by mid-2006. For those of you not familiar with 802.11n, this is the next generation in wireless networking, promising real throughput of at least 100Mbps.

Exciting things are happening in the wireless world. Within a couple of years, it will be a totally different landscape.

CNET Supports Trackback

Matt Mullenweg did some URI hacking back in September and discovered that CNET supports Trackback and Pingback. Back then, this functionality was only exposed by some clever hacking.

Today, while catching up with everything that happened on the web over the Thanksgiving holiday, I noticed that Matt announced that it is official. There are trackback buttons all over the CNET site. This is yet another sign that some media outlets are taking notice of blogs.
