The Kfar Saba, Israel-based startup has built a piece of hardware meant to displace television news satellite-transmission trucks. It combines existing cellular, Wi-Fi and WiMAX signals to transmit live video. Half the size of a laptop, the device can (supposedly) reliably and cheaply deliver up to 2 MB per second.
I’m working my fanny off in a green company called SpringStar. We’re focused on pesticide-free pest management. We’re not a start-up. We’ve been around since 1998, but a year ago we re-energized, changed management, etc. Today we’re using insect communications to lure and trap pests, confuse them so they don’t reproduce, or just to repel them. It’s neat stuff, high-tech chemistry and electronics brought to bear with patentable IP, etc.

Phone News is reporting that Apple may be adding integrated WWAN (3G) to the MacBook line soon. Apple added support for EVDO directly into the OS making them the first OEM to do so and this only makes sense. Interestingly the report says the wireless module will be an ExpressCard module situated behind the LCD screen for better reception.

However, Apple is planning to design the card to beseated behind the display panel, removing RF interference and enhancingsignal quality. Details however are scarce on the addition however.

Dave Matthews’ is a musician I don’t care much about. I especially don’t care for his new album, Stand Up, that is said to be crashing Windows PCs. The CD forces you to install some software, and if you refuse and eject the CD, the next time you try and play it again, your PC will go boom! In words of Photo Matt “this is a very bad thing.” Yet another example of record companies are doing dumb things, in order to save their coke-snorting, martini swilling, price-gouging business model, that no longer works.
