I want to reiterate on AirConsole because it IS amazing. I don't even
grab a laptop when I go onsite anymore, just an AirConsole, its
usb-serial cable and a tablet.

Laptop can be a requirement if you need more than a serial, but using
serial-over-wifi and a tablet is an incredible quality of life upgrade
if you only need a quick reconfigure most of the time.

Even if you have to use a laptop, it's so much better to not be attached
to the rack so you can find a more comfortable place to work.

Although it's kinda strange that Andoid app is free but IOS one isn't.
Also I wish I could use their wifi as a simple bridge without its own
DHCP while using a serial, it'd be even more nice for troubleshooting.
