You missed it! But Today's Woot is waiting!

Extreme Networking

Are you emotionally, mentally, and spiritually prepared for the wireless data you're about to experience? 

Use this: to take your domestic wireless data transfer game to the EXTREME. 

Don't use this: if you're not ready for WiFi connection situated at or near the known world's extremity. 

The only way to make this better would be: if the "Beamforce" feature was capable of acting as some kind of tractor beam for that pie cooling on the windowsill across the way. Gimme dat pie, Buffalo! 

Archie Tinker, rodeo cowboy, describes how to best wrangle this product: "If'n it's the American Buffalo ya aim t' wrangle, oooooOOOOOeeee boy -- fools rush in, friend. Fools rush in." 

The SNL episode hosted by this product features a sketch in which: something mildly amusing happens in the first minute, but by the sixth minute you're wishing the world would cease to be so you didn't have to keep watching it.
