Targeted ads

Yes, it is approaching that time of the year again when we need to be more careful about closing the laptop when it’s on the kitchen table and children are about.

Pool Wi-Fi

Writes one Redditor: “As a WLAN admin for a college, I actually got this request today.”

Not everyone found the request remarkable.

“It's really not beyond the expectation that nobody would ever need WiFi there,” writes another Redditor. “These days you really just need to assume that anywhere there are people, you will need to put in WiFi.”

Another said he drew the AP line at bathrooms, though.
