It looks like the PC has to start the connection first. So the button push only sends out the data if a PC is waiting for the connection. Likewise the PC probably can't say its ready and waiting if someone else is attempting waiting for you to push the router's
Likewise, its not hard to use standard SSL style connections to ensure the data can't be read, reused or otherwise intercepted successfully.
Uh.. I have a question, where the heck is the bootstrapper and its related documentation?
Short of the little client-only framework subset checkbox on the project properties, I can't find any docs, blog postings or anything on how to create the boostrapper installer or implement it in ClickOnce or otherwise.
Webslices a new feature? You are kidding, right? I mean it would be nice that the folks of channel9 just go out a little to see what is going on. Webslices is nothing more than a ripp off of Webclip, a feature introduced in Safari for
Mac OS 10.5. At least IE folks could be honest and clearly admit that they took the idea from Safari and they ripped it off. That won't kill them....
Webclips are quite different and require the user to select the area of the page they want to monitor, select it and manually create a watch for it where in the background, a full rendering of the page will be being downloaded and rendered on to the OS X dashboard.
Webslices are webmaster designed miniblocks designed specifically for the purpose of being served to the user, takes up far less resources (not being rendered when the browser isn't open, smaller download of updated content by the feed sync service) and requires
less work from the user (two left mouse button clicks).
It was probably inspired by Safari's webclips, but this is a far better solution than the ad-hoc work around of that browser (which isn't supported on the Windows platform of course).
