The wife wants a baby monitor. If I win this I can tell her this is it... Soooo much quieter than a baby monitor....




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

muppet: It would use it for when our TelstraClear service doesn't work properly, which currently appears to be 25% of the time.

When not using it, I will hang it around my neck as a fashion statement.



Hah, that's what I said. Stole my awesome idea!?


So I did, and I can't go back and edit it now. Apologise for that, I didn't read the posts before I made mine.

I will therefore not hang it around my neck and/or wear it as a fashion statement.

I will instead strap it to my head and make "beee booop beeep" noises as I do the robot.

I would give it to my grandmother for her 70th this year. She'd probably stick it in a drawer and tell me she uses it every day, but the thought's there.

I would use it to hold up the short leg on our office coffee table.  Nothing seems to do the job right, and I think this would fit the bill perfectly.

No use for the 3G wifi functionality really.

I would worship you if you could do the robot as good as that guy. But I would suggest keeping the hotspot away from your head, 2 Radios can't be good for you (well, it may be good for some, but not all)

Wow cool, Flashy lights, just like the Daleks.

Actually, I'll be serious instead of funny.
Last year I had a heart transplant (100% true). It has changed my life and the perspective on life.
So I have decided to take my family on an extended holiday around NZ in February.
Travelling via Caravan. My Kids both have laptops, as do I, and this gadget is just the toy I had been looking around for to purchase to have during our travels. My Kids will have blogs set up so they can record and log their adventures daily, and report back to their schools on a daily basis. This kinda toy, is gonna make this task real easy.
Failing that...

I guess I can also tell you that as head of the Watchman Island Sports Club, that entering into our airspace with such a device contravenes the independent arrangement of internal Islands electronic noxious signal agreement, and I must confiscate said such device and all other like it. Drop off can be made directly to Watchman Island, c/- WISC Waitemata Harbour. And Please stop throwing things at us from the Harbour Bridge!

Yours wonderfully

Young at Heart.  - RIP Miemie, my wonderful donor (true bit)

aahh, I can just see it, sitting on the deck outside my caravan, mid-summer catching up on the wider world on my iPad connected to the internet over wifi

you know what i would do with this router when i get it. i would put this router into my fridge with the thermometer attached to it and wait for the temp to reach 2degrees. well if someone asks me why did i do that, i would simply reply: isn't that what the logos represents Laughing. well that was a joke. now being serious, if i had this router i would do everything from education to staying in touch with loved ones and friends.

I plan to attach this WiFi router to a lanyard and hang it around my neck for all the world to gaze upon my awesome bling!
(Little USB flash drives around my neck are so last decade!)

If you read back, I already said bling >.<

This is the 2nd time I have mentioned it.
