They missed an important point.

Some technology users may experience some glitches, such as people using VPN software to connect with their offices or users of point-to-point software such as Skype, he adds.
Anyone that uses a residential router (Linksys, D-Link, Netgear, etc) is likely to need to upgrade that, most likely by buying a new one. Set-top boxes are generally IPv4; anyone with a TV is likely to need to upgrade at least the software. Skype is not yet IPv6-capable, and will need one an update. "The ISPs will take care of this" is a really empty hope. The ISPs will take care of their part, but users should expect that there will be things jiggling over the coming couple of years.
