That's only because dumb people (like you) don't realize in the first place when it would be useful. p2p comms with both ends behind a NAT?
Sure, i mean routing your shit through a 3rd party server also makes it "work", but it's arguably undesirable, except for dumb people (like you, again) who do not care. Happy Skyping.

God dammit. I see what you're trying to say, but seriously this is so wrong. It's no big deal (i.e. easy to implement) to have End-to-End connectivity and still not be "exposed" to the oh-so-hostile Internet.
It is a big deal (i.e. impossible) to actually get End-to-End connecitivity when you do need it but find yourself behind a (carrier grade) NAT.

Breaking this one fundamental principle for the added comfort of being able to just deploy a NAT and feel reasonably secure is totally not worth it. Really, stop.

That doesn't need "no power"; it harvests the energy from the signal itself. A similar thing could be imagined with digital equipment, although admittedly just a razor blade and a pencil doesn't get you very far in that situation.

Anyway, the detector radio, while interesting, cannot pickup FM, so I don't see how it is relevant here.
