Gartner: Home Networks Still in 'Trough of Disillusionment'

OK, we'll admit that this isn't the most important story of all time from a partner perspective, but we're throwing it in because 1) It's August, and news is slow; 2) It's pretty interesting; and 3) We love the fact that the analysts at Gartner actually use, presumably with a straight face, terms such as "trough of disillusionment."

Anyway, Garter says, probably quite correctly this time, that home networking stuff is just way too hard for the average consumer to use.
