A new feature in win7 thought some might enjoy reading "Virtual" wifi.
While it's kind of interesting, it is for the most part underwhelming. I was thinking, and so was the author, that this is of little use to many users.

My sentiments exactly - although you said it better than I could have :)

I agree with both of you, I can only see this making any difference for the business sector, albeit only for the small business. I can see security being something of a issue with vWiFi. It's has the chance to be an interesting tech a few years down the road personally I can see it becoming large in embedded device if they choice to include that.

About as interesting as Microsoft Surface.

I want a Microsoft Surface coffee table in my living room. That would be really sweet. I wonder if they'll be selling them to consumers by next summer...

Start saving now. Last I heard, it cost $10,000.

Anytime I think of the Surface, I can't help but now think of this parody video.

$10k eh? Hmm, while I should certainly be able to afford it next summer, I think I'm gonna hold off till it's a little cheaper.
