Latency and bandwidth on a local network should be irrelevant. Sure if stuck using wifi in an apartment you might have issues but in that case invest in a long video cable.

Most controller based games are pretty forgiving for input latency, and I'm certainly not going to sit on a couch with a keyboard and mouse seutp.

The article mentions this is based on sites compromised, I wonder if this list isn't to some extent self-selecting towards bad passwords. Lower value sites are more likely to be compromised than high value sites like Amazon or Google, and on low value sites people are much more likely to use garbage. Personally I use a pw database but still use junk passwords on sites when its irrelevant if the account were to be compromised.

I've advocated to people for quite a while that they'd be better off buying a season on DVD once a month rather than cable subscriptions. Seasons are typically 20-50$, if you trickle it out over a month you're saving money, plus a year or two later you still own the content and can watch it for free if you feel like it.
