Features, Office In a June 2003 Wired Magazine interview, Martha Stewart said, "Bill Gates' house, for example, is totally out of date now. He built it right before wireless happened. The big tunnels for all his wires - he doesn't need any of that stuff anymore." The article wasn't about networking, or even technology, but I was struck by that statement because it was echoed by several people when I was explaining that I was running many thousands of feet of cable in OSNews' "house of the future." "Is all that cable really necessary now that there's wireless everything?" people said. As much as I respect Martha Stewart's business and design acumen, neither she, nor those people who talked to me, know what they're talking about. When it comes to networking, there's no substitute for a wire, when a wire's available. -- This is the latest entry in our 2008 Article Contest.

I'm not the one embarrassing myself. Maybe all you guys who talks so much about this need some real world experience?


Don't make assumptions about my experience, you don't know me. My point was you treated the guy like an idiot for suggesting you can increase bandwidth by using technology like etherchannel, which is in widespread use.

Then dont talk about me embarrassing myself.
I was pointing out, perhaps too sarcastically, that etherchannel, or any other bonding technology, can not realistically give you a dedicated wirespeed channel between you and every device you communicate with.
