Webcams: not just for creeps to show off their junk anymore!

Is this particular Foscam IP camera "better" than the other Foscams we're selling over on Woot today? It's a question with no easy answer. In the kingdom of night-vision-enabled, wireless, weatherproof cameras that you can view from a web browser, perhaps the one-eyed man is king. (Psst, he's actually not, but we let him think he is. Poor guy's been through a lot with the whole losing-an-eye situation.)

The one thing we can tell you with certainty about the FI8905WS Wireless IP Camera is that it's the model we were able to acquire the highest quantity of. And in these times of uncertainty and doubt, isn't that good enough? It's certainly good enough to serve as a conclusion for this paragraph. And sometimes, that's good enough enough.
