OPINION

Interference Cancellation
By James Gaskin

When I visited a company in the technical district of San Francisco, they joked there were so many wireless signals in the area they didn't need a microwave for their popcorn - they just put the bag in the window. Needless to say, wireless connections for their internal computers didn't work because they couldn't find a clear channel. If you struggle with interference for data and cell phone signals, help is on the way.
