Galtronics Node Pears Options

No one would tell me the answer to the obvious question "Why pears?"

No one would tell me the answer to the obvious question "Why pears?" But this whimsical wireless node, shown at Comdex last month, is a member of Galtronics newly launched Pear Wireless line of 802.11 gear (www.pearwireless.com). This compact decorator enclosure houses a desktop access point and a Universal Serial Bus client adapter.

The company wouldnt let me photograph the patent-not-yet-applied-for insides of its adjustable directional antennas, which solve the wireless security problem in a truly novel way: Dont send or receive wireless signals except where you have legitimate users. Obvious, eh?

Meanwhile, we refuse to participate in the companys shameless punning on the subject of Pear-to-Pear networks. Oops.
