Wireless And Web Buzz Again As WiFi Catches On

from the gotta-find-something-to-hype dept

Great. Just what we need. With all the stories recently about how internet stocks have been creeping up, everyone seems to be looking for a “hype” story to latch onto. Reuters has now discovered WiFi. The article really has nothing new in it, but does suggest that WiFi may get even more hype in the near future as bored business/tech writers need a story about a new technology that will finally take us out of the downturn. This will, inevitably, be followed up with all the stories about how WiFi never lived up to its overhyped promises. In the meantime, plenty of people will just keep on using WiFi, and not worrying so much about the popular press is saying.
