The CJAM 1000 bomb beater is a powerful portable cellular jamming device that lets you stop pagers, cell phones, wi-fi or any other microwave frequency for up to 1 km around your location. You can activate it remotely. Of course, it IS a bit difficult to purchase.
When wireless hot-spots started springing up in cities circa 2001, this shift had dramatic impact on the way people interacted. Released from their wireline chains, people were no longer constrained to use their computers in isolation.
In May 2006, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will auction airwave spectrum to allow broadband Wi-Fi on airplanes flying over North America on a ground-to-air network.
Half of all malfunctioning products returned to stores by consumers are in full working order, but customers can't figure out how to operate the devices, a scientist said on Monday.
Product complaints and returns are often caused by poor design, but companies frequently dismiss them as "nuisance calls", Elke den Ouden found in her thesis at the Technical University of Eindhoven in the south of the Netherlands.
The Zenview Command Center Elite combines six 24-inch Samsung displays into one. Each display runs at 1920x1200 pixels, you do the math to multiply that times six. The screens have a 1000:1 contrast ration and 6 millisecond response times.
Hard drive prices have been dropping for years, and the trend continues. I recently purchased a 200 gigabyte internal disk drive for $99.99. The store also had larger capacity drives available at higher prices. Such storage capacities were unheard of only a few years ago. However, to add one of these drives to your computer, you either have to be a computer hardware whiz or at least know a hardware whiz that you can ask to help. This week I thought I would describe how you can easily add one of these drives to a PC, Macintosh, or Linux system without opening the case. In fact, you can probably do the task yourself, with or without the whiz' help.
BEDMINSTER, NJ -- Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider, announced today that customers with The V and VX8100 from LG or the RAZR V3c and E815 from Motorola can use their wireless phone as a modem and get BroadbandAccess on Verizon Wireless' award-winning Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) network.
Skype plans to turn intimate get-togethers into block parties through an audioconferencing service that will allow for conferences with as many as 500 callers.
The popular VoIP service currently allows only five users on a call at one time, but that will expand when Highspeedconferencing.com gets certified as a Skype service, expected in the next few weeks, according to a Skype press representative. When that happens, and the service emerges from beta testing, it will become available through Skype's home page or the Skype Store site.
Wouldn't you like to have one of these when some turkey in the movie theater pulls out his cell phone and babbles on forever?
The CX 200 Portable Director II is now available in Japan. This device reportedly jams the popular Japanese cell phone frequencies for 70 seconds. You can buy one (in Japan) for $71 in U.S. greenbacks.
You know that you just HAVE to get one of these in order to keep up with the neighbors. (What was their name? Jetson or something like that?)
The Connect Io Intelligent Oven from Tonight's Menu Intelligent Ovens (TMIO) is fully connected to your in-home network. It can be monitored and controlled from any Internet-enabled device (your cellphones, your PDAs, your PSPs) or touch-tone phone, which makes it super-handy for last-minute schedule-shuffling. This oven even includes a 6.8-inch touchscreen LCD.
The price is a modest (?) $8,699. I doubt if it is in stock just yet at BestBuy.
A new study by Yankee Group finds that multiple PC ownership and broadband Internet access are the prime motivators of home networking.
Only a minority of US households have more than one computer. 79% of US households have a PC, while only 31% have two or more. However, the trend is upward. 40% of all Internet users are now using broadband connections.
