And speaking of irony, if everyday we celebrated a different profession and didn't have to work ever, should those professions actually be celebrated since you would never be working?
How could FriendFeed sell to Facebook?!
That is, unless they have fixed their battery tech.
My thoughts exactly, first thing that came to my mind!!!
Good for the wintertime maybe? It gets really cold here in the Chicagoland area. Good to have a dual purpose ebook reader/pocket warmer.
The hard part nowadays is actually finding a HUB. It is very difficult to actually buy a hub anymore, and most "hubs" sold in the US anyway are actually low-end unmanaged switches, so you can't sniff traffic on them.
I had the same problem at a customer site where one of the IDIOTS had packets being sent on some high numbered ports because of a virus they had downloaded. It was EXTREMELY TOUGH finding an actual hub, but I was finally able to hunt one down at Best Buy for around $15.
I swear, you do a search for network hub and you get matches ranging from network switches to routers to usb hubs. Do enough searching, though, and you will find one... eventually.
I haven't had many hardware issues with them, but if they do go out, it's best if you're in a location where a Zebra certified technician can reach you. This isn't a problem for most major cities, though if you're in a rural area, it may be a little more difficult.
