These days, we’re almost always connected, always online. Especially when you have a smartphone and 3G or 4G in your bundle. But what about the holidays, when you’re at vacation, outside your country? Of course it’s quite nice to be offline for some time, but what if you need to look up something, connect with people (you’ve just met) on Facebook? I think we all know some spots where we can go to, places like Starbucks or McDonalds always have free wifi. When I am outside the Netherlands, that’s where I would go, because I am assured to find free Wi-Fi there.
Time for an easier solution!
Startups are hot nowadays. If you follow sites like The Verge, TechCrunch and The Next Web you read about them all the time. So time to jump in on the hype. Here is the weirdest startup of this summer: José’s “Wifi Dogs“. According to the founder, dogs can be trained to detect Wi-Fi and they lead their owners directly to the source of the signal. Together with his co-founder Santiago, his wife Rosa and a pack of dogs, José is looking to cause a revolution in the travel industry. Although…
Telecom company T-Mobile was inspired by the bizarre things people do to find free Wi-Fi. Therefore, they devised a way to make surfing while on holiday a lot easier.
Personally, I think I’d rather go find a Starbucks or McDonalds to connect maybe I even enable my data roaming, when I am really desperate. I don’t see myself using a dog to find a signal to connect, but hé who knows, maybe this would become normal one day… If this startup becomes successful… Check out the video below and let me know if you think this would become a hit!
