In a Blinking Modem, a Code of Betrayal

NY Times – Eight years ago, while working late in a darkened computer lab at the University of Seattle, Joe Loughry became fascinated with the lights blinking on the face of his modem. They seemed to be relaying information about the long file transfer he had started, and he wondered exactly how much information the tiny light-emitting diodes were transmitting.

For the Ears, Wireless Gear That Brakes for Phone Calls

NY TIMES – Much as routers handle the flow of data in homes, the Plantronics Pulsar 590 headphones are routers for the ears.

The Pulsar 590 uses wireless Bluetooth technology to connect to any Bluetooth-enabled phone or an iPod or other media player with a standard headphone jack.

If your media player doesn’t have Bluetooth built in, you can use the included adapter to stream your audio over the air to the headphones. This lets you stash your player in a bag and still listen to your music.

About Me

I live in Brooklyn, NY and write about technology, security, gadget, gear, wristwatches, and the Internet. After spending four years as an IT programmer, I switched gears and became a full-time journalist. My work has appeared in the New York Times, Laptop, PC Upgrade, Surge, Gizmodo, Men’s Health, InSync, Linux Journal, Popular Science, InSync, and I’ve written a book called Black Hat: Misfits, Criminals, and Scammers in the Internet Age.

I am currently Gadgets Editor of TechCrunch and I supervise the BWL family of blogs, SlushPile.net, WristWatchReview.com, and MacMiniGear.com.
