Le Wi-Fi! C’est dans tout le camping! Ok, my French isn’t that great but you get the picture.
Last week, I stayed in four campsites in four days. Two in England, two in France. Both French ones were equipped with Wi-Fi throughout the site – the cost €2 per hour. Not bad.
Neither UK ones had any form of Wi-Fi access. What are you doing campsite owners? Entertain your guests! Blatant plug – go get yourself a PolkaSpots Wi-Fi hotspot today!
Google have pretty much taken over the world. Both at PolkaSpots Wi-Fi Hotspots and in my private life, Google own me. They even sync my Blackberry to my Macbook wirelessly. In fact, I’m writing this from a Google blogging service too.
But what a pickle they’ve got themselves into recently by ‘accidentally’ collecting data from Wi-Fi Hotspots.
Google collected the data from public Wi-Fi Hotspots around the world when surveying the streets for their Street view data.
Eric Schmidt said at an interview recently “Who was harmed? Name the person.” Not the point really is it…
With so much of our lives held in Google’s hands right now, they need to be reassuring us their not going to accidentally do something with the information that’s stored on their servers.
