Wow! Pair this with the Grid network and it's optic internet all the way! I think this needs to be kept out of telcom company hands. They would completely crooken it. I'm gonna keep a copy of the story and keep an eye out down the road to see if it really does not increase our home cost for internet when it heads the consumers way.

Hypothetically speaking if comcast and time warner are so concerened with p2p clogging up their bandwidth now, they should have caps removed if they get their hands on this, there is no reason to bitch and complain with so much bandwidth. And most likely they'll jack up their prices while they still claim p2p robs them of money everyday. Sure, jump on the p2p blame bandwagon, you toot your horn, I'll ring the freedom bell. 

But that's hypothetical in all terms, but this news is super exciting! Wonder if video phones will really be possible and if someone ever invented a seg1 broadcast system like in japan, that'd be huge!

 I have wondered for many years when someone will come out with a fiber-optic chip/CPU.  Faster without the heat.  Intel/AMD, are you listening?

It'll be interesting to see what can be done in the way of thin-clients with this technology....

Oh hurry up, I'm a busy man. Ugh, this high-speed
modem is intolerably slow. (The download is interrupted

Internet King. I wonder if he can provide faster nudity...
