ENTRIES TAGGED "wireless networks"
lectronic record systems need all kinds of underlying support. Your
patient doesn't want to hear, "You need an antibiotic right away, but

her that billing will be delayed for the same reason.

the days before flat-rate long distance phone calls (much less app
stores for cell phones).

The event showed that innovation and investment are not always companions on the Internet. An in-depth look at the current state of the debate over competition and network neutrality.
