I surely wouldn't opt to install it if they still have those "features".
I wasn't aware of the issue(s) with their "initial try", a quick look suggested that these features are standard on their current line of routers and that the firmware update would bring my older E3000 up to the new(er) standard.

I certainly have no interest in cloud computing, but might be convinced that being able to access some of my files from a public account might be useful from time to time. It also looks like they've got some form of scheme to allow remote access to vid cam shots as well.

Guess I'll have to do some more research.
