Our reliance on computers, television, and phones has increased over the last couple of decades. As we needed more and more electronic devices, it seemed that there were wires and cords everywhere. Setting up a home network use to be quite a hassle. Fortunately, just about every piece of technology we love has been improved by incorporating some type of wireless capabilities, whether through a wireless transceiver, Bluetooth, or some other means. |
The internet used to be exclusively wired. You could choose whether to connect via a phone cable, or an ethernet cable. Selecting multiple internet-capable devices required a complicated series of hubs, switches, and cables running throughout your home. Today, wireless cards and routers let you set up devices to access the internet. You can even access the internet through your cell phone service.
Most phones and their headsets use a Bluetooth transceiver, which is capable of sending data without a wire. This means your phone can be in your pocket, purse, or even sliding around on the floor in your car, but the headset on your ear is still able to accept calls from it. The wireless transceiver in phones also allows it to transmit data to a car stereo that is Bluetooth capable, and can play the audio of a call and receive your voice input.
Now, even charging devices with electricity can be wireless. No, there are no Tesla-like electric bolts shooting through the air, but you can simply set your laptop, phone, and mp3 on a pad, and they will charge. You don't need to take the time to plug them into anything, you just set them there.
This wireless technology movement is more than it seems. It's not just one wireless technology being applied, it's several types of wireless transceivers and technologies all being implemented in different ways. Never before have we been able to enjoy so much wireless convenience.
