Little mentioned feature of the iPhone – It’s a great WiFi detector.

Honestly, had Apple mentioned the fact that the iPhone detects just about every visible WiFi network you walk by, that would have been just one more selling point for me. I’ve been mulling over getting a Canary Wireless Digital Hotspotter for quite a while now. Now, who needs it? My iPhone automatically tells me all about the nearby wireless networks and shows whether they’re encrypted or not. (It doesn’t tell you what kind of encryption until you try to connect, but that’s more detail than the Airport menu on OS X provides to you.)

    Hi, I have been challenged to “tag” 8 other bloggers and ask them to divulge 8 facts about themselveson their own blog.

    Here’s my blog: http://www.wishtosee.com/archives/2007/07/tagged.htm

    Here are the rules:
    1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
    2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
    3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
    4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
    5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
