Oakland Hot Zone

I didn’t know about OHZ till day before yesterday. Its really cool that something like this is so near to my workplace. I’ll certainly try it whenever I get a chance.

I think Wi-Fi has a bright future. What I see now is that whole world wified in coming years, may be 2030? (by that time Indian population = 150 crore.) Acc. to me the WiFi spots will be either available everywhere with low charges or no charges at all. They will be provided free if the governments take initiative and set them up (ofcourse they’ll charge tax for that.)

The other alternate can be that the companies setup Wifi hotspots (just like they have cells for mobiles) and then charge a fee for that. The fee would be minimal as the technology will get cheaper. The Wifi I am talking here is not the present day 802.11(WiFi) or 802.16 (MAN – Metropolitain Area Networks) but it will be beyond present day network ranges and data rates.

4G is an interesting thing to read about, here is a paper that I wrote on it for one of my classes. Don’t Plagarize, add me as a source if u r riting a paper…. I just put the paper for the benifit of those people (like me) who like to work at the last moment and then need something readymade :P. I got 90/100 on it.

WiFi rules!!! so does Bluetooth and 4G!!

    Interestingly, I too noticed the sign, but I kinda knew from looking it up on the Internet the free hotspots. It, too, is close to my work. In fact, the zone is next to my job. Now my problem I’m having is I can’t log on.
