High-speed wireless video transfers 100X faster than WiFi

IBM is looking to change the way you watch video. The company today is announcing microprocessor chipsets that can wirelessly transmit high-definition video between computers, televisions and handheld devices in the time it takes to push the Play button.

IBM will do this by teaming with MediaTek to launch a joint initiative to develop these ultra fast chipsets that will let users rid their homes and offices of the cumbersome wires needed to connect their HD-TVs to set top boxes and or other devices. The companies will be developing millimeter wave (mmWave) radio technology -- the highest frequency portion of the radio spectrum -- 60 gigahertz rather than 2.4 gigahertz -- and digital chipsets that enable at least 100 times higher data rates than current Wi-Fi standards, IBM said in a release.

Users could upload a 10 gigabyte file in five seconds with the new technology versus 10 minutes using current Wi-Fi technology. mmWave wireless technology can be widely used at home and office for applications such as multimedia content downloads or uncompressed HDTV streaming from your DVD player. Users could wirelessly download and synchronize iPod-like devices with music and videos in seconds.

The companies will integrate IBM's new mmWave radio chips, antenna, and package technology with MediaTek's digital baseband and video processing chips.

IBM joins an increasingly crowded market aiming to speed networked video. Advanced Micro Devices, Intel, Texas Instruments also have plans for wireless chip packages targeting video applications.

Making Optimum Choices in Life

I was asked by one of my business mentees I am currently mentoring, "How do I make the most optimum choice in life when I am bombarded with possibilities all the time?"Life is full of choices. This choice, that choice, both choice or none of the above. THAT's a whopping 4 choice!  Choice can open the door to a whole new possibilities, not only at cross-roads on our path in life, but in each moment, giving us access to the bountiful of possibilities with which we can paint our world any way we want it to be.  We can choose a new action, thought or feeling at any time, and create an entirely new reality as a result.  Every choice has an impact or consequence, to a greater or lesser extent, each one like a pebble dropped in a pond; the ripples, the ramifications, spreading out into your future and other areas of your life. Even one small choice made today that shifts your life by a minor degree can take you to an entirely different future than the one you are heading, opening …

The 4 Essentials of Effective Leadership

I read this article written Mark Raciappa, ActionCOACH and I totally agree. His communication is clear, concise and it resonated with me. Mark says;
I remember a bumper sticker: “Either Lead or Follow—But Get Out of the Way!”
Interestingly, in my company, I say something similar and it goes like this "If you can lead, lead. If you can't lead, follow. If you cannot lead or follow, get out of my way!
Mark continued to write that, when our role calls for the former, here are 4 important things to keep in mind:1. Great leaders communicate. Realizing that good communication is a 2-way street, we must be responsible for our part. That being said, true communication is the response that you get. Whatever form you choose (verbal, mail, e-mail, etc), if you don’t get the outcome you seek (from a “willing” recipient), the responsibility lies with the sender. Great leaders confirm, gain commitment, and solicit feedback to improve the process.2. Great leaders make decisions. Far too ofte…
