Longer Battery Life for WiFi Products

When you have cell phones that can access WiFi networks and other gadgets that need to be used all day on battery power alone need better batters or the devices are all but useless except for a short part of the day.
To that end PC World reports that The Wi-Fi Alliance is set to attack one of the main problems with wireless LAN phones by certifying features to extend battery life.
The industry group that certifies interoperability of Wi-Fi products is adding a label it calls Wireless Multimedia (WMM) Power Save, which identifies products that have reduced the power needed to use multimedia applications over wireless LANs, said Frank Hanzlik, managing director of the alliance.
