I have seen the future, and it looks a lot like the present, only with less clutterfewer cords and cables running everywhere. Who needs this mess of wires in order to make a PC work? Already, we have wireless mice, keyboards, and WiFi network adapters. At some point, standards like USB are going to have to go wireless. If it's done right, I'm ready. There's no reason why my mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers, webcam, or any of the rest of it need wires.
And now that residential broadband has severely stumbled, it seems possible 3G wireless phone networks could become the next hope for a monopoly-free bandwidth. And why not?
