This Week In Emerging Technology - February 6

Here are the emerging technology stories for the week of February 4th. The State of the FCC Spectrum Auction - Here's an update on the wireless airwave auction that the FCC is carrying out right now. This thing can't end soon enough for me. Body Powered Chips - Very interesting article about MIT research into low voltage chips that could be powered by human body heat. IPv6 Finally Making Some Headway - Looks like about half of the root DNS servers of the Internet have finally been updated to work with IPv6 addresses. Maybe I will see widespread IPv6 adoption someday. Converting Voice Mail to Text - Several companies are working on ways to convert voice mails into text messages that can be sent to email or text services. Great, convert something I get too many of into something that I get WAY to many of. One Computer to Run the Internet - Research at IBM is focused on building a computer system that could theoretically run the entire Internet. That's cool but how well does it run Bioshock?
