Google Gets Into Hardware

Google has made the plunge into consumer networking with their new OnHub product. This is a WiFi router that is administered through an application instead of directly through a web interface. There is a lot of promise going on with the router, but you have to realize that Google is probably inspecting all of your packets and getting even more data off of you - and you're paying them to do it. The OnHub goes on sale in the USA shortly and will set you back $199.

OnHub's key selling point really seems to be that it's easy to set up and painless to troubleshoot. It connects to iOS and Android phones through what looks like a clean and stylish app, which tells owners how many devices are connected to OnHub and what kind of speeds they're getting.
