I, Cringely Google's OnHub router may save WiFi from itself - I, Cringely

Likely compelling, for many inclined to expand their Google relationships

"But those 13 antennas and the 1.4-GHz Qualcomm processor don’t inherently address the problems WiFi brings to the Internet. That’s where OnHub is potentially even more radical, because it’s the first such device that’s likely to be managed by the vendor and not by you. One huge problem with WiFi is the firmware in these devices is difficult to upgrade and impossible to upgrade remotely, but OnHub promises to change that with a continuous stream of tweaks to its GenToo brain straight from the Googleplex. If we forget privacy considerations for a moment this is a brilliant approach because it makes each WiFi network a dynamic thing capable of being optimized beyond anything imagined to date."
