Set Soapbox = ON
Everytime I read more about the ways people are trying to turn Wi-Fi into another way to intrude on our lives it makes me a bit sad. Sad that people would dream up ways to do things to others they would NEVER want done to themselves.
I bet most who work on such project NEVER want to share their own personal data, have companies inject data into your Internet stream, or enjoy having Captive Portals slow down and hassle themselves at every turn.
Excellent points from Keith. I think the problem starts breaking down when you realize that “Free Wifi” only stays that way when someone is getting value for their investment. And the people financing that investment want to have a product…
