    This has got to be one of the coolest products I've ever seen, and I don't even have my hands on it yet (pre-ordered; damn wait!) I can't wait to get to use it.

    And I'm a PC user!

    My big use is going to be hotels. I travel a lot and about half the hotels I stay at have wired broadband, not wireless. I hate dragging a 25' CAT5 cable around with me. Added bonus: it can firewall me from the Hotel network. Also, in hotels that do not have broadband (happens, sucks) if I am traveling with coworkers (some have also preordered too) we can setup a ad-hoc Wifi LAN in the hotel since they can bridge to one-another and have a 150' range.

    Also, I do security work and this little thing is giving me such evil ideas. "I TOLD you physical security was important!" :rofl:

    :eek3: :cool: somehow, in all my excitement about the iTunes integration, I managed to completely miss comprehending that it had that (standalone WAP on the go) functionality. That is pretty darn sweet.

    Time to join the pre-order club. :)

    I agree it is awesome and at a fantastic price. The iTunes functionality alone is worth it to me.
