The smallest Spectrum analyzer

Wi-Spy is the world's smallest 2.4 GHz spectrum analyzer and has been designed specifically for troubleshooting and analyzing Wi-Fi networks. Its software allows recording and playback of data traces and draws pretty graphs.
We're excited about Wi-Spy 2.4x and think you will be, too! The hardware has been redesigned to increase the frequency and amplitude resolution with an added reverse-polarity SMA adapter. Wi-Spy 2.4x is packaged with a powerful little antenna, so it’s good from the start but it's also a snap to screw-on any RP-SMA antenna you choose. The Chanalyzer software has been upgraded to version 2.1, which takes full advantage of the higher resolution with improved graphics and an even friendlier user interface.
  • Increased frequency and amplitude resolution
  • Helps you identify wi-fi interference (802.11 b/g/n, microwave ovens, cordless phones, Bluetooth, etc.)
  • Frequency range is 2.400 - 2.4835 GHz
  • Record/playback data traces
  • Frequency/amplitude marker
  • Frequency / Wi-Fi / Zigbee channel labels
  • Save or copy image to clipboard
  • Spectral, Topographic, and Planar Views
  • Download Beta version of software for Mac

Blackberry open opprtunity to developers

RIM has announced the future of  the BlackBerry Widget Software Development Kit (SDK) to enable third party application developers tobuild rich, integrated applications for BlackBerry® smartphones using common web technologies. With the new BlackBerry Widget SDK, developers can build web-based applications for BlackBerry smartphones with advanced features and functionality, a capability only previously available for BlackBerry applications written in Java®. 

A BlackBerry Widget uses the BlackBerry® Browser engine torender an application's user interface using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.Developers are able to use existing web content to create BlackBerry Widgets and extend the capabilities of their web applications using BlackBerry Widget APIs.

Using the new BlackBerry Widget APIs, developers can, for example, create seamless interaction between a widget and the BlackBerry email and calendar applications, create widgets with the ability to view or editfiles and documents stored on the smartphone, access location-based services orthe media player, and more. Developers can also take advantage of RIM's unique push technology, enabling dynamic widgets that can run in the background andprovide proactive alerts to users in a timely manner.

"BlackBerry Widgets open up a world of opportunities for developers to build and bring to market web applications for BlackBerry smartphones that offer advanced, integrated functionality and an always-on user experience," said Alan Brenner, senior vice president, BlackBerry platforms at RIM. "We are very excited by the prospects of this new widget developmentplatform which combines the ease of development of standard web languages withthe rich functionality of Java development."

IDF 09 : Not convergence but continuum

With technology today is very fast growing, a lot of technology driven players; like Microsoft, Cisco, Avaya, and many others concentrate toward technology convergence. Convergence is the word used diffrently by different industries. People talking about Fixed/Mobile convergence, network/content convergence, but Intel has different approach towards their future product, It is called "continuum".

The continuum is about making different devices work together seamlessly and in a familiar way for everyone — both for users and developers. Intel is developing a new spectrum for their computing device, from server to worksation, dwon to home desktop and mobile to the handheld, all are using single architecture. Al the while, chip maker only concentrate about their CPU speed, size and power consumption, but from now onwards, they should also be more focusing on the other factors such as bandwidth, user interface, social networking and even tweets.

Paul Otellini, Intel president and chief executive officer, was on stage during the IDF 09 with the new a silicon wafer with the world’s first working 22nm chips. The wafer consisted of SRAM memory modules that each contained 2.9 billion transistors. However, processors based on 22nm won’t begin shipping before 2011. According to him, the Intel is still the leader as other chip maker still use the 45 nm while Intel will start using a 32 nm chips.
