Wireless USB

So, wireless USB has been in the works for quite a long while. The working group was formed back in '04, the spec completed in '05, demoed in '06, and finally commercialized last year.

To me, the wireless USB hubs are pretty compelling, in that I could set the hub up on a desk, and dock my iPhone, iPod, external hard drive, etc, and access it from elsewhere in the apartment, without having to drag around a mess of cables and things with my laptop. The wikipedia article even mentions how there's a chip for laptop integration, meaning future laptops may have it built in, and not require the dongle I would need with my current machine.

I really do hope the solution takes off - I'm not ready to pay close to $200 for the convenience this would provide, but I could see paying half of that . . .
