My router injects a unique identifier into every packet it sends. The manufacturer claims they can't turn it off. Yeah, probably under pressure from the government. But I'm building my own open source router that blanks out everything—MAC, IP, you name it. I'll be invisible to everyone. Take that, Orwellian bastards!

Interactive live tiles could shine here, turning the click-fest we have now into a modern (no pun intended) take on the original Macintosh control panel.
By replacing dumb menus with interactive gadgets you could shave a click or two off most setting changes, so the user doesn't get lost in nested screen after nested screen.

Unfortunately, Microsoft's "modern" design guide seems to be a manifesto on how to make the user as lost as possible, so I'm not getting my hopes up.
