The new IEEE 802.22 standard has been published and will finally allow manufacturers to start producing standardized devices that will use the white space vacated by analog TVs over two years ago. The standards will provide networking in areas over a 62 mile radius at speeds of up to 22Mbps.
In theory, that means as few as 307 devices could cover the entire United States. (In reality, it would likely take many more than that.)
With all the cloud OSes like ChromeOS and B2G (Mozilla) we are going to need something for devices that use those to flourish. I think the cloud OS thing may be a good idea. since no matter what device you use your files are always there. Specially good if you use several devices. Still would like to have offline modes though. However this is very awesome and I hope this gets launched! This is also cheaper for the ISPs as they don't have to worry about cables and outages would happen less often.
I am anxious for tech like this!
