As I played around with the iPhone 5 on Wednesday, I wondered what the late Steve Jobs would have thought about the latest twist on Apple's best-selling device. It didn't take long to conclude Jobs would have been delighted with the iPhone 5's blend of beauty, utility and versatility.
As a naturally clumsy person, I’m all about using technology to improve safety, whether it’s in a car or on a motorcycle. If there was a device that would beep before my knee collided with a desk, cubicle wall, low table, or other immovable object, I would own 12.
At first glance Voice over LTE (VoLTE), the next generation of wireless voice technology, looks suspiciously like VoIP service over a wireless connection. At a very basic level it is exactly that: digitized voice-band audio transmitted as IP packets and demodulated into voice-band audio. Then what is the difference between VoLTE and over-the-top services like Skype, Vonage or Gizmo5?
The Balluff BIS V Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system is founded on a new generation of RFID processors that provide a single device for both low frequency 125 kHz and high frequency 13.56 MHz read/write heads with an IO-Link master port. Combining up to four head capability on both frequencies

Microchip Technology Inc. expanded its Multi-Purpose Flash Plus (MPF+) portfolio with four new compact 512K x16 Parallel Flash CMOS devices: the SST39VF401C, SST39F402C, SST39LF401C and the SST39LF402C. Manufactured with CMOS SuperFlash technology, these low-power
A bad weather front is fast approaching and a cloudburst is imminent. If you happen to be away from home, but have left a window open, either deliberately or because you forgot to check one room, you may be in for a wet surprise when you come home.
The PLXO-100-XA from EM Research is a phase-locked crystal oscillator operating at 100 MHz and features an internal reference-detect switch. When no reference is connected to the device, the reference detect switch automatically engages a 10 MHz internal TCXO, providing uninterrupted use of the PLXO-100.
The CLX-1020-XA Phase-Locked Oscillator from EM Research operates at 1020 MHz and features exceptionally-low phase noise (<-109 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz). The unit is locked to an internal reference and offers +7 dBm output power with low power consumption (+5 VDC @ <65 mA) and low spurs (<-80 dBc).
GreenPeak Technologies today announced the launch of the new GP710, a dual-protocol ZigBee communications controller with simultaneous support for ZigBee RF4CE and ZigBee IP/ZigBee PRO protocols. The GP710 communication controller is targeted for set-top boxes, gateways and Smart Home controllers and designed for supporting simultaneously ZigBee RF4CE applications – such as remote controls...
Cypress Semiconductor today announced that Lite-On Technology Corporation has selected Cypress’s 2.4-GHz WirelessUSB-NL radio-on-a-chip for its next-generation wireless keyboard and mouse set. WirelessUSB-NL’s low power consumption enables two AA batteries to power the mouse and keyboard for up to three years.
Digital content consumption is on a steep rise – witness the mass adoption of multiple connected devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. This surge and the increased reliance on wireless networks –not to mention the growth of video content, which is expected to reach more than 86 percent of global consumer traffic by 2016 according to the Cisco Visual Networking Index...
Let's face it: Robots are better than people.They’re more dependable than humans (i.e. no sick days), they’re usually cheaper, and they don’t complain. The downside is pretty obvious as well, at least with the primitive robots we have today:
Driven by increased demand from developed regions for high-end models, along with an unexpectedly strong push from emerging economies for lower-cost products, smartphones are expected to rise to account for the majority of global cellphone shipments in 2013 — two years earlier than previously predicted.
