The Economist on the forthcoming rise in use of the 60-gigahertz band for wireless connections:

What about that old network fixture, the Ethernet cable? Though typically used for transferring files around local-area networks at a humble one gigabit a second, Ethernet has the potential to go 100 times faster than that. As such, it is probably safe from 60-gigahertz streaming for the time being. Though once 60-gigahertz radio chips start being incorporated in smartphones, tablets and laptops, hard-wired connections of all sorts will be threatened with extinction.

I cannot wait for this (not-too-distant) future.
