I think this is the best and worst thing to come along the electronics gadget pike in a long time. A portable, WiFi finder. Kensington is providing this particular gadget.
Your life on the road just got a lot easier. With the first and only WiFi detector on the market today, you no longer need to cross your fingers as you wait for your notebook to boot up. Just press a button and the Kensington WiFi Finder lets you know if your location is “hot”…instantly. No software or computer needed. What could be easier?
Yes, indeed, what could be easier? I guess this would be great for people that just want net access, but what about other, scruple impaired individuals?
802.11 seems to be a popular topic nowadays, what with the revelation that the PSP is going to have integrated wireless networking, as well. Interesting gaming possibilities there, along with the inherent security issues that always accompany wireless anything.
I remember watching television when I was younger, and when the Mission Impossible team actually had to send a man to the telephone switch box to physically connect a wire to redirect a call. *shrug* Just a thought that came into my head.
