QUOTE (dbclass50 @ 29 Mar 2008, 00:05) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>IMHO "wireless" is, strictly speaking correct for infra red but not really what people may interpret - marketing forces at work ?
More like playing on the ignorance - or rather the lack of education on technical matters that pervades our society today.
Of course, the term 'Wireless' comes from a time when radio really was the only way of doing it.
As has been mentioned elsewhere, the only way round it now is to drop the 'Wireless' term completely and be more specific about the actual technique employed in each case.
