A step up from your average consumer router...it has security (although limited) automatically configured!

"This antenna-enhanced box sends data to and from desktops, laptops, smart phones and TiVos throughout the house. Its indicator lights glow, signaling all is well with the network."

Ah, a company with the stones and knowledge to protect data...notable!

"At Cryptography Research, the key number is two. There are two separate computer networks, two different systems on every employee's desk and twice the normal number of servers storing data. To keep hackers out of the network the company runs disparate and unconnected networks--an A network for sensitive data and core engineering work that is not connected to the Internet, and a B network used for e-mail, Web surfing and other Internet activities."

The idea of cable cos. offering a "Residential Gateway" and having a set-top-box as "the primary point of entry into the digital home" concerns me greatly! For this same reason I install a router between the ISP and my LAN. I want a demarcation point under my control...untangle.com offers an open source firewall which I believe is the best perimeter solution for the digital home.

“There's been a resurgence in the concept of the residential gateway, a complex device capable of delivering multiple services to the home, including video, data, voice and wireless. RGs can deliver many of the service packages consumers are asking for, and they also open a path for service providers to extend their reach further into their subscribers' homes with future services.”

"Most of the talk about future fourth-generation (4G) mobile broadband networks appears to focus on speed. These networks will be far, far faster than current 3G networks. But speed isn't actually the main reason why every carrier in the developed world is trying to extend the life of 3G networks by speeding them up, and build 4G networks as fast as equipment and financing is available. It's all about congestion and capacity, not speed. (In the developing world, 2G networks are being boosted to 3G speeds, too.)"

The article’s premise suggests that limiting access to content only by specific users via IPv6 and whitelisting will solve their problem of piracy, it’s still a short term solution and leaves a bigger issue of other content which users don’t want, shouldn’t have access too, and/or which compromise their systems! While I agree the user is the biggest threat to the desktop, enterprise, and content in the cloud, along with any lack of security on the net, I would suggest whitelisting and possibly IPv6 is the solution to solve both issues. Now if simple applications which utilized such would become available to consumers, and have the same support of these “leading web content providers”, it would go a long way to offer a long term solution to much of what ails the net today…

"Open source 'whitelist' would aid transition to next-gen Internet services, proponents say"

"ECMC, a guarantor of federal student loans, said today that a theft has occurred from its headquarters involving portable media with personally identifiable information. The stolen data contained information on approximately 3.3 million individuals and included names, addresses, dates of birth and social security numbers. No bank account or other financial account information was included in the data. ECMC is releasing this information today after receiving approval from law enforcement authorities."

Show me one "perfect operating system"?
As technology improves our demand for more and easier tools increases...this article has and will be written by consumers and users till the end of time!

"Microsoft's Windows 7 improved upon myriad problems with Windows Vista, but it's still not a perfect operating system. Helpful utilities, however, can shore up Windows 7's weaker spots. One tool makes it easier to organize your Windows 7 desktop, while another makes creating and resizing partitions a drag-and-drop affair."
