Legislation Is Restricting Internet Access, Expert Warns

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Aug. 17, 2009) — Laws aimed at tackling illegal use of wireless Internet connections are restricting attempts to increase broadband access, according to newly published research.

Daithí Mac Síthigh, a lecturer in IT and Internet law at the University of East Anglia (UEA), says current legislation may not be the most appropriate way to regulate 'wifi' sharing – where a network is used by more than one person - and needs clarifying...

Electronic Help For Caregivers Monitoring Patients' Health And Whereabouts

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (June 27, 2009) — For those who are caring for elderly parents, peace of mind is hard to come by. And, for their parents, dignity is hard to retain. But a team of University of Houston researchers hopes to ease worries and frustrations by designing an affordable in-home health-monitoring system that will notify caregivers, via smartphones or PDAs, if their loved ones need attention.

"Our system will allow for such things as vital...
