Verizon has once again shown its leadership in consumer broadband with its recent decision to increase FiOS Internet upload speeds to match the download speeds.

Have you ever wished for a ‘Smart Home?’ I don't know about you but I've longed to be able to control my home heating/cooling, lighting and security all from one central place that I can access from anywhere I might be.

Sunish, 40, who was born sighted, experienced the onset of Retinal Pigmentosa, a condition that affects a person’s night vision and peripheral vision, in the mid-1990s. He was diagnosed with the incurable disease in 2001.

 

The population of the United States is aging rapidly, and many persons in the older population have disabilities that lower their quality of life. In fact:

  • 14.2% of persons over 65 reported long-lasting blindness, deafness, or hearing impairment in 2000.
  • And 42% reported some type of long-lasting disabilities.

It is important to enable seniors, persons with various disabilities, and other groups of consumers to access easily the ever-more-complex user interfaces found in everyday consumer electronics and home appliances.
