The Skinny on Ultrawideband
By Arielle Emmett
Faster than a speeding Wi-Fi, more powerful than a USB cable...it's ultrawideband! Bluetooth on steroids?

It walks through walls. It sounds like a laundry detergent or a hip-hop radio station. Most people simply haven't heard of it. Some analysts call it “superman.” But now the term “ultrawideband” (UWB) is fast becoming the mobile industry's most anticipated and argued about emerging technology for high-speed personal area networks (PANs).

Industry titans are already clashing over these tiny chip-size radios and piconets, still in their formative stages. And UWB, first unleashed when the FCC liberated large chunks of unlicensed military spectrum for commercial applications in February 2002, could easily become fodder for the next big standards war—i.e., Betamax vs. VHS, CDMA vs. GSM and now UWB in two different technology stripes pitting Motorola vs. Intel and Texas Instruments in a race to bring UWB to multiple home, mobility and enterprise markets.

Don't Give One to Moses...
By Eric M. Zeman
...because it would be a pity if he smashed such an interesting and useful device to smithereens.

Here I sit in my office in New York, feet propped up on my desk, scrawling away on a Tablet PC that is resting comfortably in my lap. Aside from swapping my office for more enticing scenery (a beach comes to mind), I can't imagine a more relaxing way to pen this article about the much-hyped Tablet PC.

The two-year anniversary of the Tablet is only a few months hence, and making in-roads in the enterprise has been a slow and difficult climb for the Tablet (500,000 units shipped in the first year, which Microsoft called “on track”). Sure, we've seen some deployments in verticals such as healthcare and public services where data collection and forms-based computing are the norm, but I have yet to see a regular professional boot one up during a meeting to take notes.

I think some of the hesitation at embracing a new technology is natural. True, sometimes it's fun to be the first on the block with the newest toys, but it's not always practical.
