It's Great By Any Name

I usually don't write opinion pieces, in light of the old saying comparing them to a part of the human backside. But with all the dire warnings about the initial crop of draft 802.11n products in the news lately, I thought it was time to speak up and offer an alternative, more positive view.

As the title of this piece says, I think it's just dandy for you to go out and buy the latest and greatest that the gods of wireless LAN technology have seen fit to bestow on us. Actually, I not only think it's dandy, but that it's your duty. Whether it's called draft 11n, draft n, nFiniti, TopDog, XSPAN, Intensi-fi, nAncy or nUcular; it's all good. Here's why:

You Need The Speed

The big throughput number on the box has been used to get us geekatroids salivatin' since TI decided to recycle its PBCC technology that didn't make the cut into 802.11g. They just took lemons and made 22 Mb/s lemonade and it's been off to the WLAN speed races ever since.

And what a great thing all this speed has been. We all now have super-fast and reliable wireless connectivity throughout our homes and businesses. And how about all that HD video that you stream around your home? How did we ever live with that poky old 11 Mb/s stuff?
