It's astounding. Time is fleeting. Look back just 15 years or so and my, how things have changed. What were the hot tech gadgets and trends in the first few years of the 21st century? The Nokia 6610 was the best-selling cellphone in 2002; it featured text messaging -- its memory could store up to...

I recently purchased a Bluetooth speaker. All the prior Bluetooth speakers I owned had two connectivity modes: pairing with phones or tablets via Bluetooth, or physically plugging in an Aux cable. This model of Bluetooth speaker was different -- it demanded a Wi-Fi connection. I was curious and...

What's the most reliable wireless technology you use? Most people I speak to say it's cellular. That's not to say cellular is 100% reliable. But it's as near today to a "gold standard" in wireless engineering (with timely patches and updates, of course). In fact, blanketed with decent 4G...

Consumers are demanding an ever-greater variety in fresh food products as the cold chain, or perishable supply chain, becomes increasingly globalized. At the same time, people are demanding more transparency about where food comes from to ensure that they choose and get the healthiest and freshest...

Arguments have been made that the first compass, created nearly 200 years ago, marks the birth of wireless technology; others say it could have been invented as far back as 206 BC. However, I would argue the real explosion happened in more recent history with Wi-Fi, cellular and short-range...

Mesh networking is key to the success of the internet of things. In comparison to traditional wired counterparts, mesh networks are less expensive to implement, more adaptable and scalable, and offer greater reliability for high-traffic implementations. While niche technologies such as Thread and...
