Re: new google router

Looks like a good WiFi router too even if that's all it did. That plus the ZigBee/Weave integration and at the same price point as the Apple Airport Extreme (which I love and use)!

I don't personally like an integrated router and WiFi access point - I find that separate devices can get better results; but having said that, the TP-Link routers (non-WiFi) that I have used are freaking amazing and some of the best around so I would trust this to be a solid device.

I didn't see anything about Z-Wave when I read their announcement the other day, Karl, but did see ZigBee and Weave mentioned... I didn't see any particular details on their use/abilities of those technologies though. Maybe too early or I just missed it.
