Slower than a dial-up

One of my most common computer complaints is it's too slow! I learned from coolcatteacher about GiFi. It will be available in 2009 (I hope), faster than WiFi, and cheaper!
University of Melbourne has developed a new wireless chip that would move data fifty times faster. The punchline is the chip costs $10 to build.
The implications....Not only will I not complain as often about speed, but consider the wireless applications that GiFi will enable for education alone! Maybe if we all complain, it will get here faster...
