Call me paranoid, but...
Wireless is all very well, but I wouldn't be happy using something
working at 2.4 - 2.5 GHz (given that 2.45GHz (resonant frequency of
water molecules) is the frequency that manufacturers of microwave ovens
go to great lengths to shield _into_ their devices). I'm led to believe
that as the working frequency of a radio device approaches 2.45GHz, the
severity of potential side effects (all the ones you hear about with
mobile phones) increase exponentially for a given signal strength.
And for some reason, 2.4 - 2.5 GHz devices are licence exempt... hmmm...
