UK Gets Europe’s First 3G Femtocell

judgecorp writes “Femtocells have been on the horizon for a while, but the UK just got the first 3G femtocell launch in Europe, by Vodafone. The device connects to handsets in the room and links them to the cellular network over broadband. It’s a classic win-win, because it gives the user better coverage and takes traffic off the service provider’s network. The only complaint might be from the broadband provider, who could be carrying traffic for a rival. Vodafone isn’t pushing the data angle, but since it has HSPA, the product could work just fine with laptops and dongles. Femtos have been in limbo waiting for serious launches, but judging from the list of speakers at the World Femtocell Summit in London, Vodafone might not be the only one.

Could We Beam Broadband Internet Into Iran?

abenamer writes “Some reporter at a recent White House press briefing just asked the White House press secretary, Robert Gibbs, this question: Was ‘the White House….considering beaming broad capability into Iran via satellite so the opposition forces would be able to communicate with themselves and the outside world?’ ‘Gibbs said he didn’t know such a thing was possible. (Is it?) But he said he would check on the technological feasibility and get back with an answer.’ I’m not sure what the reporter meant by beaming broadband into Iran: Do they even have 3G? Would we bomb the Iranians with SIM cards that would allow them to get text messages from the VOA? Or somehow put up massive Wi-Fi transmitters from Iraq and beam it into Iran? How would you beam broadband into Iran?”

The Commodore 64 vs. the iPhone 3G S

Harry writes “The unfortunate news about Apple rejecting a Commodore 64 emulator from the iPhone App Store inspired me to compare the C64 to the new iPhone 3G S, in more detail than any rational person is likely to compare them, ever again. If nothing else, it’s a snapshot of just how far technology has come since the C64’s release in August of 1982.”
