Hit the Ground Running

One of my pet peeves with the current generation is their apparent lack of understanding of physics.  The iStuff folks, both producers and consumers, act as if there is infinite bandwidth for each unit in the wild.  And, of course, there isn't.  Turns out, not everybody in the industry is quite so lunkheaded.  It turns out, if you increase the density of receivers, lots of good things happen.

Implicit in the story:  wireless is rapidly going wired; just as it has to and should have been from the beginning.  All these mini-cells are like the spines of a jelly fish, tethered back to the mothership.  Far more signal can be carried on optic, even copper, than on the ether. 

Now, if only we can get Mr. Fusion up and running.
