Whenever a new technology starts to hit the mainstream, some press outlets may have a hard time grasping it: That seems to be the problem in this UPI article, which among other odd statements notes that WiMax helps customers roam from one wireless network to another, apparently a key factor in delivering 3G networks. Somehow the reporter has also concluded that there are security concerns with WiMax that would allow hackers to access these “free” networks and “wreak havoc on mobile phone calling.” This is probably the most far off-base article I’ve seen about WiMax.
We all get it wrong sometimes, but it seems that a wee bit more research was really necessary before this reporter should have published this story.
In the spirit of disclosing roots of information, for those of you who aren’t aware of it, UPI is owned by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who claims to have seen Jesus and then founded a church. He also owns The Washington Times.
