A Word to the Wise on WiMax

Marty Cooper, who invented the cell phone three decades ago, is disappointed it’s taking so long for the same kind of mobility to reach the PC.

“Telling someone they have to be at a computer at a fixed location is actually nutty,” says Cooper, who has spent the last decade convincing fellow engineers that “smart antennas” are the future of wireless.

In another 10 years, Cooper predicts, high-speed mobile internet connections will be so commonplace people will take them for granted. He’s convinced that a key technology behind such capability will be the wireless broadband standard known as WiMax. (Wired)
