Airports ground use of wireless

by Rob Flickenger

Some irritating news in the wireless world.

This kind of whining sounds alot like record companies "losing" millions because of Napster. How can we make people realize that you can't lose money on a service you didn't provide? That just because you think you have a monopoly, noone is obliged to use your service / product / ideology?

Of course, airports aren't exactly 'public property'... I wonder how the FCC will side with interfering with use of the public airwaves. There's a reason that the 2.4Ghz band was deregulated...

What about peer-to-peer networking? Or even Bluetooth? Are we going to start seeing 802.11 and PCS jammers installed in every terminal?
