MaxStream

What transmits on the 900MHz spectrum at a full watt (not that it provides an accurage point of comparison, but most cellphones transmit at about 0.4 watts), uses AES encryption, and fires off data at up to 230 kbps as far as 40 miles? The MaxStream, of course. What, don't act like the headline gave it away or something. Of course, it's yet to be determined if anyone will ever use this proprietary system (despite the fact that they call themselves the "Worldwide Leader in Wireless Device Networking", we'll give you one guess as to whether or not this ever gets widely adopted), but we like that they're trying! Maybe they can make a Bluetooth version next?
