More wireless networks in Detroit
by brian d foy
I went to Borders to look for a book, and they had huge LCD screens hawking their T-Mobile hotspot, which I can also get in Starbucks. I have to pay for those if I want them, but there is so much free stuff around, why should I?
After that, as I was walking back to the hotel, which also has wireless that pops in and out (and I have my own Airport set up), I had to walk under an awning that seemed to say something more than what its designers had intended.*
Now I want like to turn my phone into an 802.11 detector. It is already a camera (it took that picture) and a PDA. Wouldn't that be cool?
* )( is the war-chalking symbol for an open network.
Where have you found unexpected Wi-Fi access.
