A couple of notices in the email today....

Top Technology releases of 2010

Bluetooth 3.0
Bluetooth to the max. I’m sure you, or at the very least someone you know, has owned a Bluetooth enabled device since they were first introduced on the market. While Bluetooth has come a long way, the next and most interesting step will be truly significant in defining the way we see and use Bluetooth technology. Version 3.0 is obviously faster, with expected speeds of up to 480 megabits per second, but there are some other features you will love when Bluetooth 3.0 is released in 2010.

NFC (near filed communication)
You may not agree with it, yet. It’s the wave of the future and NFC is the type of technology that won’t go away. So what is it? Basically, near field communication allows you to transfer money, and make payments using your cellphone. For example, if I made a side bet with a friend on whether he can shoot an old, moldy jelly bean across the room into an empty mug – I would have to pay right there. On the spot. It would just be a matter of holding our cells close to one another and using the application to access both bank accounts. Kinda scary, yes. Positively genius, I’ll let you be the judge.

Yes, you did read correctly. It seems we’ve reached that point. 2010 will be the start of a very long road for 3D TV technology. Sky is expected to release an all 3D channel and Panasonic a line of televisions to bring 3d into our homes. Even the World Cup will be available in stunning 3D, even if it won’t be live. Mark my words. 3D TV is here.

These are just a few of the many new technologies expected to be released in 2010. To read even more about what’s new and exciting in the tech world, visit these sites.
