I found out today that ALL VIP Auto Parts Stores now have FREE wireless hot spots. We were caching in Winslow on Sunday and we got a connection across from a VIP. We thought how cool. Today I was in a VIP and saw a sign at the register saying exactly that. I asked the girl at the checkout and she confirmed it. VIP's are everywhere! Awesome!!

The girl at the store out by the mall said all stores either have or soon will have a wireless hot spot available.

I'm not advocating "stealing" wireless internet access, but, sheesh! If it's just out there waiting for you... :eek: :eek:

I'm posting this at the Brewer VIP. This is not stealing since they have signs up telling people that they have FREE WI-FI. I need to have a list of all VIP's now. This is great.;)

Whos stealing since we are not taking anything simply using it without asking, It's more like a covert borrowing.:D

if they say you need to be a customer to use it, go in and buy a candy bar! (i wouldn't recommend parts or service from there though) :D

I look it as a trade off for sending radio waves through my body:p

Good article Bruce. I was not aware that this was going on. I guess we should have realized it would have happend sooner or later. I would be real careful and make sure of the hot spots you are connecting to.
