Comment Definitely more WiFi congestion (Score 1) 45

Hmmm, bigger immediate issue if this becomes a common technology is the congestion it will cause on wifi in multi-station environments that are closely located (apartments, track homes, etc). Even single stations will have issue if more than one user is sending traffic.

In general, I think the best use of this kind of technology is business, mainly all those "consultants" that come on site to do their powerpoint presentations. Having it easier to access a projector has it's benefits, and the lag is not a big deal in that case.

In any case, I don't find Intel's solution that awe inspiring, other than getting manufactures to include it natively.

Submission + - Gonzales denies Americans have habeas rights

TrumpetPower! writes: "This past Thursday, in response to questioning by Senator Arlen Specter (R, PA), US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales told the Senate Judiciary committee that ``The Constitution doesn't say every individual in the United States or citizen is hereby granted or assured the right of habeas corpus. '' The exchange between Mr. Gonzales and Senator Specter has received virtually no attention from the press; Google News currently has all of a dozen or so stories. Habeas corpus is the right, in America guaranteed by Article I, Section 9, of the Constitution, which ensures that people are not unjustly imprisoned and tried."
