The battle of Cupertino: Jailbreakers do it for freedom, not cash


Re: Jailbreak - not just for the young

Both good suggestions, DryBones - but I have neither of those items; just a trio of desktop PCs, several Internet radios, a Roku or two, and the handful of iDevices. I did think seriously about buying an Android phone just to host a sniffer app, but at the time, I didn't see the right device for sale without a connected phone service to pay for. My house has walls thick enough to cause all sorts of Wi-Fi dead spots, so the ability to walk around watching the signal come and go was one driver for me. Another was the signals I could see coming in from neighbours on all four sides, causing me to consider my channel assignments carefully. Finally, I added a couple of range extenders, and really wanted to see what they were actually doing - the little blue lights on the front of the extenders were pretty. but not terribly informative. pxd
