The coolest cool things in tech:
We think they’re jumping the gun a bit, but Newsweek is running a story on how Nintendo is primed for a comeback with the Wii. Their main argument of course boils down to the e3 response coupled with an attractive price point. Oh, and while we’re on the subject of video games, there is more evidence that gaming is good for children. Told you so mom!
Hey, good news for all you WiFi anywhere freaks. M2Z Networks, fronted by former FCC official John Muleta, is looking to provide free WiFi across the USA. Ad supported of course. Now the fun will be seeing who can win the race and roll out free WiFi first. My bet is on Google…. Speaking of WiFi, looks like the geeks at IEEE can’t make their minds up about Wireless N standards. Sure, we’ve got the N draft models coming out already from Linksys, et al. But true Mimo Meshing will need to wait a while.
So, can’t make up your mind between Mac, Linux and MSoft? Why not buy a MacBook and use all three. While you’re at the software modifications game, why not try your hand at some DS Lite Brew. MmmmmMmmmmGooood!
