Today, the FCC leaked some info about the Sonos ZoneBridge, a wireless device with little or no practical details. But people familiar with the system understand that such a product could fill two specific needs: • Since Sonos requires one hard Ethernet connection to a router, the current system requires you to use up one of your ZonePlayers ($US349 and up) for that purpose. A cheaper (maybe even as low as $US99) Wi-Fi Ethernet bridge would solve that problem. • Since you can carry the Controller throughout the house, especially the big-ass houses of affluent Sonos owners, network-only non-music-playing ZoneBridges could be used to enhance the mesh network.

An hour before midnight on New Year’s Eve in 1985, a bunch of Harley executives sat in a room at a bank with two stacks of papers, one for bankruptcy and another for recapitalization, if their last gasp ask for fresh investment came in. They had given themselves until midnight to get new money or go bankrupt, and time was running out.
Well, that was fun while it lasted.
