    Post Do not pass go, go straight to jail.

    So....picking up on the many "wifi piggybacking" threads we've had here (for the record stealing wifi is wrong!) I just stumbled on this device called a slurpr. I can only imagine the ignorant masses that will buy this damn thing and end up sitting in county lockup wondering what they did wrong...

    hell, maybe we can get like a hidden camera tv show like To Catch a Predator by setting up open wifi in different places and letting those evil pedo...er i mean wifi thiefs connect in.

    They have said they are going into production for almost a year as far as I remember, so don't go holding your breath.

    Yea, we had a discussion about it over at the 'stumbler forums a while back. I don't think any one could really see a "good" use for it.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Is it a "good" use if it saves lives? Some of those medical MRI scan files are over a gig... it'd be handy if the doctor got them today rather than by the end of the week

    I haven't seen a laptop yet that can display a medical MRI at full resolution. Used to have a scan of my wife's head a year or so ago. Couldn't display it full resolution on my 21" desktop!
