    I'm just seeing this as an excuse for companies to charge insane fees for practically the same thing...


    Fast as it is, there's going to be a point where more speed becomes pointless...

    It is used principally for imaging in research contexts, as terahertz waves penetrate many materials as effectively as X-rays but deposit far less energy and therefore cause less damage
    will it keep me warm in the winter?

    That sounds pretty cool, but recently there's the new 802.11ac standard which is essentially close to gigabit speeds over wireless.

    We'll start seeing 802.11ac/n/g routers and wireless access points soon.

    Any reason why do you know? I appreciate it's very new but still, I'd expect all manufacturers to start shipping these soon.

    Can't find it now and sods law I probably won't find it again but came across a youtube video where they were saying due to it not being standardised and also because they already do beamforming on the hardware level as apposed to basic beam forming which 802.11ac provides and also due to the 160 mhz channels ( apparently means only a few people will get higher bandwidth meaning if you have 30 plus people then most of those people will lose bandwidth or possibly connection - could be wrong here )

    The whole Aim of Ruckus is to provide the best connection possible to multiple users ie classroom or otherwise

    Thus only leaving some things over ie 8 spatial streams instead of 4 and possibly other things that I am over looking or missed ( presumably I think they are waiting for it to become standardised and also make sure that it will provide the enterprise markets benefits before implementing anything )
