    The 1TB wifi external hard drive is something that many of us could use. What would be even more useful would be a wifi cradle for connecting any traditional hard drive -- in other words, separate the wifi part from the hard drive, and sell it separately.

    Something which I believe would be very useful for me would be multiple powerline adapters. My church has virtually no ethernet wiring; to get out from the router, you currently have to go wireless. However, there are dead spots in the building. I'm thinking that a powerline module in each of these spots would be a very easy way to solve this problem.
