When I use my laptop in a hotel, I’m used to it finding dozens of Wi-Fi networks belonging to random strangers. When I turned on my trusty Asus X5 this morning at Harrah’s on the Las Vegas Strip, it pulled up a network belong to a friend: Xavier Lanier of Noteboks.com. I was amused. And then I was startled–Xavier told me that he wasn’t staying at Harrah’s at all, but in the next-door-but-still-far-away Venetian. His Apple Airport Express just has remarkable range.
