Dumping WiFi in the Boston Harbor

PCMag covered this yesterday - here's the short version...

In their efforts to ban airlines from offering free Wi-Fi services in
their lounges, officials representing Boston's Logan Airport continue to insist
that it's not about money, but rather about public safety and management.

Here's a shout-out to the officials at Logan Airport...if it's not about money, but rather, safety, then let's get T-Mobile HotSpot there in a flash. 8021.x will take care of any of your security issues. Our network supports the IEEE 802.1x security standard with WiFi Protected Access (WPA).

What's that mean? It means robust encryption of data transfer over the air between devices connected via WPA.

What's that in lay terms? S-E-C-U-R-I-T-Y.

At any cost($$)? Of course not. But security, at just a little cost, brings much peace o' mind.

Just me thinkin...
