New WiFi Consortium

A group of 27 technology companies said on Monday they would collaborate on a new, faster Wi-Fi wireless Internet connection standard for computers and other portable devices.

The alliance, dubbed Enhanced Wireless Consortium, joins previously separated camps that were heading towards separate standards for wireless networking.
-- Wireless industry comes together for faster Wi-Fi

The Girl forwarded that along this morning. Apparently the new standard, dubbed 802.11n, will be ten times faster than the current speeds, reduces traffic information within the signal and will take out your dishes for you when the washer stops. Eventually this stuff will be like Bluetooth, making it's way into more household items than you can shake a cantenna at.
