Super WiFi Concept Uses Empty TV Channels For Long-Distance Transmission
Our WiFi connection at home is largely confined to the indoors, and it doesn’t even reach all the corners of the house. So imagine my surprise when I read about a new technology that can send WiFi signals up to a mile away, and possibly even beyond.

Panasonic Lumix DMC FT3: Rugged and Orange
There’s something inherently cool about rugged point-and-shoot cameras. You can toss them around, drop them in water, and they’ll still end up taking great photos. For most people, it’s become apparent that their smartphones are replacing their point-and-shoots.
