    ya, I allready found two hot spots...one is t1...very nice

    this thing fits on my keychain, is light as a feather, and they say the battery lasts a year.

    if you have a laptop with a wifi card, you really need this little thingy

    in that case, get it before you go away unless there is no return policy where you get it.

    here in the states, it's in every "best buy"...maybe email the company and find out who's distributing in in your area...bt you should have it before your trip, then if it doesn't hold up, bring it back

    here's something very unusual

    I'm sitting in a starbucks, they have the t mobile hotspot service

    now, I don't use it, I use my sprint when the hot spot is not public...but this little gadget does not recognize this wi fi...I wonder why not?

    I put in my 802.11 card just to make sure, and sure enough, there's a very strong signal

    but the little gadget doesn't see it.

    now, so far it's found 5 hot spots for me, so I know it's working...hmmmm

    Nice gadget for hackers. Now everyone can find stores giving away your credit card numbers over wireless without having an obvious laptop sitting in the car. Makes it even easier.

    And with the high gain wifi antennas in another post you can sit on a hill overlooking the store and log credit card numbers all day.

    This kind of commercial technology insertion is just what we need. Now we can all go back to using cash and checks again.

    (Reference the 2 hackers caught lifting credit card numbers through a Lowe's store wifi lan in Michigan.)

    I'm going to get a little defensive here

    thief's will break into your house with screwdrivers...the list would be endless to mention the legitimate tools used for the illegitimate

    in America, the airwaves are free for all...for instance, I deliberately broadcast my INTERNET for anybody that wants to park near my house and get some free Dsl.

    plenty of people, plenty of bussinesses and plenty of municipalities do this as well...out of good will, and for public service...this device facilitates that purpose

    those companies that should be secure have only them selfs to blame if they are not...this technology has nothing to do with their irresponsible practices

    for instance, this device does nothing more then xp already does just by booting up.

    it's not new tech, it's not unknown tech.

    it's just more convenient to use this little toy then my pda or my pocket pc
