Last week Bluetooth was dying, this week it's 802.11

An article from CNet talks about a report from Forrester Research that states that the money spent on building out 802.11 for public spaces is a waste of money.

While I agree that some of the organizations are exaggerating the liklihood of people paying a lot of money for 802.11 access, I am a bit amused by this article, which takes the opposite approach of an article that I reviewed earlier from ZDNet.

This one thinks that because there are going to be more Bluetooth devices than 802.11 devices (something I don't dispute, because of the headset and synchronization opportunties with Bluetooth), that 802.11 is not the right technology for access.

As I said in my previous article, I firmly believe each has its place and they will survive nicely thank you..html
