Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
The problem I see with Tesla is if they can turn what they've done until now into an afordable sedan or they will fade into oblivion. This has much to do with the fact that I'm not quite sure that electric cars are the way to go. After all, in a couple of years hydrogen could be the next big thing. Time will tell.
Nobody said it's illegal and they are not constraining anyone to "secure" their AP. It's just like a patrol passes by and they see you are in some kind of trouble. It's their job to stop and ask if you need any assistance. If somebody wants to keep their wireless open, it will probably cost them a couple of minutes to talk to the police and explain their point of view. On the other hand, if someone is unaware that their internet connection could be used by anyone, I think it's pretty much worth it.
And, if anything, it's just a visit from your friendly police officer. They should do it more often.
What's Slashdot? I thought this was $SLASHDOT_RIVAL!
