Staying up to date with everything that’s going on in PCs and tech is almost impossible, so these are the ten technologies that you should be most aware of, as they’re the ones that’ll make the biggest difference to your life.
1. 3D gaming
The fact that to get any kind of 3D image from a 2D screen means wearing a pair of sunglasses or worse means that three dimensional gaming isn’t quite as convincing as multitouch and natural user interfaces, even though the two have been commoditised at almost the same time.
An Acer Aspire 5738 laptop with a 3D display costs about [...]
We were already convinced of the outstanding value of Microsoft pointing devices, and then along come three new ones that look like an even better deal, each costing less than $30. All have that cool Microsoft BlueTrack technology, letting you use them on any surface, even glass.
The three new models include two wireless mice, the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 ($29.95) and Wireless Mouse 2000 (also $29.95). Both are ambidextrous with rubber grips on the side; the full-sized 2000 has a tiny transceiver that snaps into the bottom of the mouse like those Microsoft Arc mice we like so much. The 3500 [...]

Intellect Wireless, a tiny company based in Reston, VA has filed suit against Apple over mobile picture/video messaging technology it claims to have successfully patented years ago.
The patent infringement suit was filed on 28 January in Illinois Northern District Court.
The complaint states that Apple infringed on the company’s patents when it provided wireless portable communication devices (you know, like the iPhone) that “receive and display caller ID information, non-facsimile pictures, video messages and/or Multimedia Messaging Services.”
It was easy to retrieve court documents [...]
I’ve used VoIP apps on the past few iterations of the iPhone as well as a number of other devices including some from Nokia, HTC, and Samsung. Those apps always only worked over WiFi and have mostly worked as advertised. Experience shows that if there’s one thing cellular companies are good at it’s ensuring a call can get from point A to point B (although AT&T has been sucking wind lately). It’s what they’ve been doing for almost two decades.
Now that Apple has lifted the ban VoIP over 3G – note it is Apple lifting these restrictions, not AT&T – [...]
Just now I shared how you can enable (wired) tethering on Nexus One, and here’s another similar tutorial to enable wireless tethering on Nexus One.
In my opinion, wireless tethering is always easier and better to set up than wired tethering as you don’t have to keep your phone connected with a USB cable.
