Shows You How Easy Ubiquity "CAN" Be

From Yahoo news.com When is a baked-bean can a Wi-Fi network antenna? .

Is using an empty baked-bean can to grab a Wi-Fi signal from a mile away high technology? The answer is yes if you're an entrant in Intel's International Science and Engineering Fair being held this week in Phoenix.


With every disruptive technology there are winners and losers.

Who benefits from ubiquitous wireless broadband? And who should be changing their entire business model to accomodate it?

Consumers and software developers are the big winners...telco's have to adapt big time...what if every physical object with its own IP address also funtions as a mini-router, would we be getting total -mesh? what implications would that have?
