I had a story a few months ago on Technobiography about some sensors temporarily installed at the Boni MRT station. I hypothesized that these were sensors would allow passage of commuters with the use of a cellphone. I wondered out loud whether the sensor would use SMS or bluetooth, or some other technology.
Later on, in private e-mails, I discovered more about the technology behind these mysterious sensors that appear and disappear at the Boni MRT station. Now, after trying out the EZ Link card in Singapore, I have a better understanding of how these sensors could work.
It was talk of the town a couple of months back when Apple made the announcement at the Worldwide Developer Conference that it would shift from the PowerPC architecture to Intel-based processors. Apple admitted that it had been secretly developing an Intel port of its acclaimed OS X after all (yes, since time immemorial). The company will sell Intel-based Macs by third quarter of 2006 starting with the entry-level machines (the Mac Minis) and eventually working up to the more powerful ones.
So what’s in it for us?
