• Ten days ago, I was discussing with Håkon Wium Lie and told him my opinion about Wi-Max: I think Wi-Max is a highly disruptive innovation in the world of mobile telephony because it will offer on one hand full-IP-based services from end to end, and on the other a drastically reduced cost of deployment. Given the range of a powerful Wi-Max hotspot, the roaming problem could be much easier to solve that in GSM, 3G, 4G worlds. So the last issue is the number of simultaneous connections. The (middle term) future is probably Wi-Max-based mobile phones. And just when I am far away from tech news, this report seems to show I am right in that assumption.
  • I wonder if men become bald when they get older to have less sex-appeal to young women than young men. In other words, do they become bald because otherwise they would have more sex-appeal than younger men? (don't misunderstand me, I am not talking about myself here and I am not joking, it's just a geeky question about the human animal...)
