Cellphones

+ - Where is AT&T's iPhone Tethering Option?

Submitted by bokmann
bokmann writes: Way back in 2008, AT&T Mobility chief Ralph de la Vega confirmed that iPhone 3G users would be able to use their phones as wireless modems in the U.S. in 2009. We are now in 2010, and it is still not available, despite the fact that the phone can do it, it is available in other countries, and AT&T allows it for other phones. WTF? Steve Jobs, how can this be true on your watch?
Networking

+ - The Future of Home Networking->

Submitted by bokmann
bokmann writes: I just found this article about the future of wireless networking. Besides an interesting overview of the IEEE and where names like 802.11n come from, it talks about some really cool stuff on the horizon, including standards like a wifi cloud around your own computer for peripherals and hardware that could be embedded in everything in your house. From the article, "you could someday use your cell phone to lock all your doors at night".
