The annual Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Five Technology Trends to Watch publication looks at the new technologies that will shape our future

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

“In this year’s 5 Technology Trends to Watch, CEA examines the evolution of content, connected devices in the home, TV beyond HD, connected cars and the smart grid. The publication also takes a peek at the future of CE. For example, IBM is working to develop artificial DNA nanostructures as a framework to build the tiny microchips used in electronics devices. Although still many years out, this work could one day affect how we build, operate and interact with electronics. Learn also about advances in a holographic storage material capable of storing 500GB of data on a DVD-size optical disc — 10 times the amount that can be stored on a dual-layer Blu-ray disc. It’s not here yet, but discs of this size could one day store 3-D video.”

A preview of the five new breakthrough technologies that will emerge in the next few years, including what they do and how they work

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

“…In our preview of technologies that are well on their way to reality, we look at the connective tissue of USB 3.0, 802.11ac, and 802.11ad for moving media–especially video–faster; at HTML5 for displaying video and content of all kinds consistently across all our devices; at augmented reality to see how the digital world will stretch into our physical reality by overlaying what we see with graphics and text; and at 3D TV, which will add image depth and believability to the experience of watching TV.”

Gartner’s list of top 10 technologies includes mobile applications and cloud computing

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

“The top strategic technology in Gartner Inc.’s annual top 10 list was cloud computing, but the one that may have been of the most interest to Bill Piatt, the CIO of the International Finance Corp., was last on the list, and that’s mobile applications.  About 60% of the ICF’s staff, which is part of the World Bank, is based overseas, mostly in emerging markets, and “the only thing that works reliably in emerging markets is cell phones,” Piatt said.”

The Wi-Fi Alliance has announced a new specification that will enable certified devices to communicate with each other directly – without a wireless hub

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

“…The potential impact of this new Wi-Fi standard could be far-reaching. Not only will devices be able to “speak” to each other, reducing or even eliminating the need for wireless hubs, but this could be what makes cell phone and gadget makers add Wi-Fi to their own devices. Imagine being able to send videos straight to your TV from your computer or sending instructions from your netbook to your favorite gadgets.”

Moving beyond Web 2.0 to Web Squared – a concept that creates new real-time internet applications based on openness and collaboration

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

“It is nearly five years since internet guru Tim O’Reilly came up with the term Web 2.0 to signal a second coming of the web after the dot com bust.  Since that time, the core ideas of Web 2.0 ­– of the internet as a computing platform and of value being created by linking people and/or applications online ­ – have also entered the mainstream. No chief information officer (CIO) can ignore Web 2.0 developments. But it is only natural to question what will come next. And according to O’Reilly, Web 2.0’s successor will be web to the power of two, or “Web Squared”.

A consumer approach to RFID can help end users achieve a faster ROI

Monday, October 5th, 2009

“…But the industry has evolved, and both passive and active RFID technologies have matured immensely. It’s no longer necessary to conduct 10- or 12-week studies on what kind of tag to use, how to install interrogators and so on. As a result, now there’s a trend toward packaged solutions—taking a consumer approach to deploying the technology. This means that one company implements the solution, even if it requires a combination of technologies to provide the best ROI for the customer. There are packaged solutions for tracking assets in a facility or yard, or combining RFID with GPS to track containers en route. There are also specific solutions for IT assets, hospital equipment and patients, and art and other high-value assets.”
