Wi-Fi laptop bag finds its own hot spots

And it doesn't look too bad either.


The idea of Wi-Fi locators built into laptops always struck us as a somewhat Catch-22 solution: You have to pull out the computer, wait for it to boot up, and say a Hail Mary or two before finding out if you're even remotely near a hot spot. That's why we appreciate something so disarmingly logical as a locator technology that's embedded directly into the laptop bag.

Despite its awkward name, the "Wiffinder" series from Spain-based Soyntec would seem to make a lot of sense, letting you hunt for a wireless connection "SideShow"-style without a separate device or even the need to open the bag, according to GeekAlerts. And they don't even look half-bad, which is more than we can say for others we've seen recently.
