This Handy App Allows You To Get Free Wi-Fi Just About Anywhere -- No, Seriously

This Handy App Allows You To Get Free Wi-Fi Just About Anywhere — No, Seriously

As much as I’d love to deny it, the truth remains that we live in a technology-dependent society. No matter where I travel, the first thing on my to-do list before I get settled in is find the Wi-Fi password and connect all my devices to the internet. In most cases, hotels will provide that information to you, but what if you’re out and about without web access? googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Unlimited access to a Wi-Fi connection is just one download away. With the WiFi Map app you can quickly find all the possible internet connections in your area. All it takes is a tap of your finger and you have access to all their Wi-Fi passwords, too.

This Is Why Your 'Locked' Luggage Isn't As Safe As You Think

This Is Why Your ‘Locked’ Luggage Isn’t As Safe As You Think

When traveling, it’s best not to keep valuable items in a locked suitcase. Your passport, credit cards, cash, and other important items should stay on your person (or at least close by). Some people believe that locking them in a suitcase is a safe alternative…but it isn’t. Even if you have a strong lock, the suitcase can be breached with relative ease. Your locked suitcase isn’t as safe as you think. Yet another example of how quickly a zip breach can occur: Expensive new luggage and gear may offer safer alternatives…but it’s best to not take anything for granted (especially if you’re traveling overseas).

The Messy Media Ethics Behind The Sony Hacks

The Messy Media Ethics Behind The Sony Hacks

The gray area where the leaked information resides — between public and private, prurient and illuminating — might not be the exception, but the new normal. View this image › Sony / Chris Ritter / BuzzFeed In the past few days, I’ve seen the email addresses of dozens of stars. I’ve seen the Amazon order histories of executives. I’ve seen the carefully laid-out breast-feeding diet of a senior VP. I’ve seen the ebullience and joy with which a famous director and the head of Sony talk about the future of filmmaking. It’s inarguably juicy, but what fascinated me more were all the documents over which my media studies colleagues — a group of which I was, until leaving for BuzzFeed, an active member — would salivate. I saw memos that could alter global film market research, I read interactions between stars and producers, and about stars and their value, that […]
