Wi-Fi makes a Virtual Office

NPRG has an article that tries to wrap around the Wi-Fi / WLAN in the office idea. The idea is that support costs decrease on a WLAN. I don't know if that is true. You save on cabling and the office is less cluttered, but cat5 is EXTREMELY more reliable and secure than wi-fi. Where I see WLAN working is at Starbucks and the library. People have a quiet place to go to meet or work, especially if they are tele-workers or SOHO owners. You go stir crazy, so go work from a wi-fi enabled store or library for a while. (I'm told that it is highly insecure to use public wi-fi. Thoughts?)
