magicJack femtocell detailed: “borrows” spectrum indoors

Yesterday we told you about VoIP provider magicJack's intention to offer a femtocell that, they claimed, would work with any GSM cellphone - even those without service - but at the time we didn't know exactly how the system worked.  Unfortunately, now that details have emerged we're not entirely convinced it's the greatest of ideas, either from a legal or a functional perspective.  It turns out the new magicJack uses, without being granted permission from the carriers who have licensed it, cellphone radio frequencies to connect GSM phones to a personal cellular base-station.

TRENDnet TEW-655BR3G WiFi-N mobile wireless router

Networking company TRENDnet have announced a new 150Mbps mobile wireless router, that - similar to a MiFi - allows you to create a wireless hotspot using 3G or 4G networks.  However, unlike the MiFi the TRENDnet TEW-655BR3G has no internal WWAN connection of its own, and instead relies on a USB 3G or 4G modem.  The company claims that no software or drivers are required, it's simply a case of slotting in your modem and sharing it with multiple WiFi clients.

Consider knocking down a non-load-bearing wall (though maybe remortgage your house first): Panasonic have brought an "ultra-large" 152-inch plasma HDTV to CES 2010.  The display isn't just special because of its whopping 4K x 2K resolution but because it'll also show Full HD 3D as long as you're wearing the proper glasses.  We stopped by Panasonic's booth to check the monster out.
