The Scientific American Web site has the cubesats piece co-authored by myself and Bob Twiggs. You can only read the first two paragraphs, but you can see our byline, which let's face it, is all I really care about. Well, that and getting paid.

Reading the Cubesat Forum (see the link) I have realized that there is still a long way till cubesats will be real competitors for big satellites.
These cubesats can not develop enough power for high speed communication. At 1200 bps, even 9600 bps they are not of much use for most practical application.
Unless a revolutionary small power source is discovered cubesats will remain toys.
