"Today's kids have grown up in a world where the internet has always been around, Google has always been there to help, and having a smartphone is the norm. It only follows that they'd be super comfortable with the web, using it just as proficiently, if not more so, than their parents. That's all well and good, but there's this one pretty huge problem: the internet is dangerous. That's why D-Link and OpenDNS have partnered to put OpenDNS on all new models of consumer model D-Link routers."
I use OpenDNS myself, and in addition to the added benefit of super-snappy DNS performance, the parental controls are a nice touch. Having it integrated at the router level is a great idea, as long as D-Link has improved their usually obscure router user interface. If they haven't, your average parent isn't going to be able to control the OpenDNS settings any easier than they could in the browser. Any other OpenDNS users out there?
