    [Wireless] Will Social Media change the way retiring abroad works?
    However, though it is increasing, in many countries high-speed wireless Internet is extremely expensive to have in a home, or simply does not exist. As the cost of healthcare skyrockets, and fewer people are able to stow away nest eggs after home values and businesses were decimated by recession and a stock market crash, retirees have been leaving the US in droves in search of a lower cost of living, more temperate climate, and a little adventure after a long career. Although data is self reported, so there may be quite a few Americans living abroad who are not accepting Social Security.

    [Wireless] Winning Unconventionally
    Square unconventionally found a solution for a universal adapter for wireless payments by determining the one similarity between all smartphones was an audio port.

Often, taking an unconventional approach can deliver results far beyond those anyone anticipated, and your differentiation can start to be part of your story.

    [Wireless] The ChromeOS CR-48 Experience: Fast, Promising, Early
    Included with the CR-48 notebook is embedded 3G wireless from Verizon, which makes the device very appealing for mobile computing. While the tech elite gained notifications early in the month that their Google ChromeOS-powered CR-48 notebooks were on their way, and thousands of others flocked to submit their names to become one of the lucky chosen 60,000 few to get access to what could be the first version of the next big operating system, my e-mail box remained empty.
