Meet GiFi, what could be our new ultra-fast wireless standard

[photopress:gifi.gif,full,left]GiFi, you say? I feel dumb enough saying “WiFi”, but now I’m going to have to say “Gifi”? Okay, sure.

It’s like WiFi, but faster. Way faster, actually, up to 5Gbps. It’s still in the development stage, and likely won’t be for networking, but imagine if you could wirelessly connect to your portable drive and copy HD movies to and from it in the blink of an eye.

That’s coolness.
