It is funny how bluetooth was going to be the next big thing that wasn't. It looks like the much faster WiFi will be taking its place. And rightfully so. It is coming to the point where the added cost is minimal to get WiFi enabled devices.


Companies like Texas Instruments began the wireless migration to devices other than laptops by shrinking the necessary silicon small enough for even a cell phone's snug confines. That paved the way for printers, personal digital assistants and even the office staple white board to abandon cables in favor of the Wi-Fi standard.
Soon, television set-top boxes, MP3 players, camcorders and even digital cameras will shed their wires as well, and the list will only grow as manufacturers try to cash in on Wi-Fi's increasing popularity.
