Various wireless technologies have been really hot for a couple of years already. Now, it is time to turn the technology into gold. Yet, I am sure there are still tremendous opportunity in R&D. Have a headstart of a couple of years experience will definitely help you advance your career.

It's a good time to be in wireless. From the chart in this article, it draws attention the drop automotive electronics had from 2011 to 2012. I think the automotive market is an indicator of the confidence people have in committing with debt. This seems to indicate that people are unsure on what to expect economically this year. Or it just means most people bought cars in 2011 and they are enjoying them now in this 2012. What do you think?
