In a battle to establish a de facto standard, is it better to deliver technology first or to have the greater number of supporters? The emergence of ultrawideband (UWB) products, which allow a wide variety of PC and consumer electronics devices to exchange information over high-speed wireless networks, may provide an answer to that question. Thwarted in their attempts to craft a compromise specification as an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard, vendors have broken into two warring camps.

So while the US and European governments battle over which standard to use, other countries will get the jump on the emerging technology, and once again leave us playing catch up.

The consumer will vote on this through the way in which he/she spends or buys products and services reguardless of what others think. So why the big deal remember how the public voted for open design of the PC.
