Interesting article on firmware upgrades for all your home electronics. Why include features today when you can defer them to later?

Actually, I shouldn't be so snarky--there are some very good reasons for this, and I'd rather see devices gain abilities through firmware upgrades than simply be told to buy a new device. At the same time, the article points out that the pitfalls of firmware upgrades are very real when every Tom, Dick and Harry has to do them.
