This Week In Emerging Technology - December 3rd

Here are the emerging technologies stories for the week of December 1st. Liquid Cooling Macs - Looks like Apple might be looking into liquid cooling techniques for laptops. Given how hot some current Mac laptops are supposedly running, it might not be a bad idea. Sprint/Clearwire Merger - Finally the long awaited merger between the 4G wireless networks of Clearwire and Sprint is complete. Now we can all look forward to having these high-speed wireless Internet networks available in our towns . . . someday. Home Heating Control Via Smartphone - Next year Nokia will supposedly release a device that will make it possible to remotely manage home tasks such as controlling heating systems remotely over via PC or smartphone. Would be nice to boost the heat on a cold night just before you get home but I would hate to see it get hacked.
