A Fit for a Data-based Technology?

May 2, 2005 7:06 am | Product Releases | Comments

Well, I needed something to pick on this month. Not that I want to necessarily pick on voice over Wi-Fi, but it does give me a launching point. First it was VoIP, now it’s VoWi-Fi. If memory serves me correctly (and I’m told that is questionable), Wi-Fi was trying to make its niche in short-range data communications....
