The article presents information on technological innovations. It reports that the development of a global standard for super-fast 3G-technology has been agreed by 26 of the major mobile operators of the world. Vodafone, NTT DoCoMo, NEC, Alcatel and Cingular Wireless LLC will work on the technology, to be called Super 3G, which is intended to be 10 times faster than current universal mobile telecommunications system services. The article also reports that Japan has announced plans to develop technology that automatically switches on public televisions to receive national emergency alerts. An existing system already broadcasts text and audio alerts over televisions, but needs a particular receiver to switch on the screen.
