The wonderful thing about I'm the only one
Everything here is my opinion. I do not speak for your employer.

If there had been an actual Atheros wifi chipset that was appropriate for use in our new TV box, I would now, in retrospect, describe the decision not to use it as a massive tactical error.

Since there was no such chipset (and I personally tried really hard to convince them to tell me there was one, even if it they had to lie, but they refused), I can only describe the universe as being generally a disappointment to me.  Please try harder next time, universe.

(This is not really a slag against the alternate vendor we went with, who seems fine.  It's just that we have to do everything twice, sigh.)

I'm CEO at Tailscale, where we make network problems disappear.
