Random Thought: Why hasn’t anyone made an Android powered WiFi router?

by: ŠtefanNovember 27, 2012

“Open networks okay for sniffing”, says Illinois judge

by: nathanSeptember 10, 2012
So here's the scenario: You have your own home network. It's never been compromised as far as you know and it's basically for sharing connections with tablets and smart-phones. Your WiFi hub is dutifully spitting out and receiving packets. One day, you get a notice from the MPAA saying you have a DMCA violation. They note they found it through your open WiFi network.
