Dream A Little Zyxel

Internet over your power lines? I keep thinking I dreamed this.

It's like, I'll just be going through my day doing whatever, and suddenly this image will pop into my head: an adapter plugged into a wall outlet, with an Ethernet cable plugged into it. And you know how in dreams you just know things? I'll just know somehow that it offers a transfer rate of 500 Mbps and 128-bit AES protection. And I'll be like, whoa, that was a weird dream.

Then I'll see this Zyxel Powerline Adapter and reality itself will crumble around me. If that was just a dream... why can I hold it in my hand? Why can I plug it into my own outlets? Why can I simultaneously enjoy streaming video, multiplayer gaming, and web browsing without any loss of speed? If the Zyxel Powerline Adapter, this spectre from my dreams, is real... is anything? Am I?
