It's a Wireless World at COMDEX
Wireless, wireless and more wireless were the buzzwords at COMDEX, the popular high-tech show in Las Vegas over the past few days.
Innovations in wireless are everywhere, according to industry watchdogs, and will enable previously wired components like stereos, TVs and other devices to be entirely self-sufficient thanks to increased bandwidth and inventions from some of the industry's top technology producers.
Also of note are Web filtering services that use artificial intelligence technology to keep, for example, employees from surfing the Web for personal use. Although it has been reported in the news that some companies are encouraging employees to go to the Internet while at work as part of an expanded benefits package, there still are a number of companies who prefer that employeees surf on their own time.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
