Gadgets get green

A short-range, wireless technology that is more energy-efficient than Bluetooth has been unveiled by Nokia says the BBC.

Ben Wood at UK-based Collins Consulting told Reuters news agency "Bluetooth is clearly not suited to some of the cooler applications like intelligent jewelry, watches - a less power hungry, smaller, cheaper solution will open some interesting new opportunities."

This thinking opens up ideas for even more platforms for communications channels to work through.

Happily for those of us who try to keep up, its a few years (OK weeks) away.
