WiGig - Cut the Cord Coming?

May 10, 2010 11:45:41.000

The upside of this new proposed Wireless standard:

At a speed of 7 gigabits per second, WiGig can easily handle the transfer of high-def video. That positions it as a replacement for wired HDMI connections or optical audio cables.

The downside - range. It sounds like it's mostly for same room transfers, not same building. Still - that would be pretty darn handy for things like Netflix, and make "out of the box" setup a ton easier.
