WW does E3:

I found an empty Dead Rising machine, and spent the next 15 minutes engaged in the sort of splattery mayhem that keeps Jack Thompson awake at night. I can confidently say that, until you've picked up a bench and crushed a zombie with it, or used CDs shuriken-style to cut off zombie heads, you really haven't lived. Of course, this is Microsoft we're talking about, and no Microsoft demo experience would be complete or authentic without lockups and rebooting, which I got to enjoy—twice.

Well, the point of WPA-PSK is that it is as secure as your password - the only attack is brute force. So, like many things, "Don't be stupid" is the guiding principle. Choose a long passphrase that isn't dictionary words and you're probably fairly safe from everything except an exhaustive search.

If you can, run WPA-RADIUS. Even better, then use 3rd party token authentication like SecurID.
