Pocket sized stumbler

Asus EEE… apparently will run a hacked Mac OS X install… hmm!

This is too tempting. £200 for a pocket sized, lightweight, ultra-portable Mac laptop. I’ve just been to London this week, and it was a pain in the ass dragging the 15″ MacBook Pro around and trying to use it while waiting for trains etc.

This Asus will appeal to many Mac geeks… will let you know how it works for stumbling ;)

Stumble: War-walking

New hardware…

I got a Linksys WUSB54G v4 off Ebay last week, with the intention of modding it for an external antenna, but took it for a drive earlier today.I was picking up a lot more SSIDs during a drive around town, routes I’ve travelled before and I’m pretty sure I was picking up SSIDs from both sides of the street, as opposed to the houses on the side I’m driving. It’s done my wigle.net stats the world of good ;)

Looks like the WUSB54G is a good, receptive bit of kit. Can’t wait for the modding!
