Cool New Products

Home Networking:
Two products up for demonstration at the Las Vegas CES (Jan 5-8): Coaxsys' TVnet 2X for 200 Mbps speeds and Ruckus Wireless' MF2900 WiFi router for 'managed WiFi' (with QoS), ready for voice, DTV, IPTV, HDTV.

Navizon needs just one GPS-user to map a city, using both WiFi and cellular AP's. All other users don't need GPS.
(Skyhook, which uses WiFi AP's and GPS and IP addresses on the side, just attracted some more funding from Intel, Bain, Nokia and CommonAngels.)
The Free Ride Data Acquisition Vehicle is a 'war bike' with GPS and WiFi for mapping ('war chalking').

Wink launches in beta. This search engine doesn't rank on the basis of the number of links (as Google does), but on the basis of the number of tags (it searches the 'tagosphere'). At the bottom though, it also provides Google results. Wink has included Slashdot, Digg, MyWeb 2.0 (Yahoo!) and (Yahoo!).
