Submission + - Ebayers iphone "Scam"

charley kane writes: "The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well at Ebay. Take for instance this listing: 19&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=2900 88305764&rd=1&rd=1 This fella figures he's gonna get the jump on Jobs and start making some cash on this iphone gadget right now! Of course unlike the wifi phone being offered by Apple Computer starting this summer, this crafty Ebayer is selling what he refers to as the "papercraft" version (see gizmodo: e-iphone-papercraft-model-227902.php)and it comes with a "fully charged battery" to boot ! Last I looked (2/28/07) bidding was up to $127.50 with 2 days to go, plus $10.00 shipping for the winner. Who knows, this "papercraft" wifi phone might catch on, maybe Apple could give everyone an iphone on the back of a cereal box ! (rechargeable battery not included)"

Submission + - WiFi a DirectTV Antenna

QuantumCrypto writes: "I always wonder what people do with their DirectTV dish antennas when they no subscribe for service. Of course, they WiFi it! This project converts a DirectTV dish into a high performance wireless network antenna. Perhaps if enough ex-DirectTV subscribers got together, the world might be a better place to link up."
