Are your kids constantly asking to get on your computer so they can use AOL Instant Messenger? The Motorola IMfree could bring you some peace. Its a wireless device, about the size of a slice of bread, with a nine-line LCD and keyboard. The IMfree communicates wirelessly up to 150 feet via a base station attached to your Web-connected computer. Buddy lists and up to six simultaneous IM sessions are supported, and you can use up to seven IMfree units with the base station.
