Guy Arrested for Stealing Wireless

http://www.sptimes.com/2005/07/04/St...a_new_br.shtml

Quote:
Richard Dinon saw the laptop's muted glow through the rear window of the SUV parked outside his home. He walked closer and noticed a man inside.

Then the man noticed Dinon and snapped his computer shut.

Maybe it's census work, the 28-year-old veterinarian told his girlfriend. An hour later, Dinon left to drive her home. The Chevy Blazer was still there, the man furtively hunched over his computer.

Dinon returned at 11 p.m. and the men repeated their strange dance.

Fifteen minutes later, Dinon called police.

Police say Benjamin Smith III, 41, used his Acer brand laptop to hack into Dinon's wireless Internet network. The April 20 arrest is considered the first of its kind in Tampa Bay and among only a few so far nationwide.

War driving. I'm amazed it still works! Idiots don't know enough to password protect their wireless LANs. Idiots! It's a radio signal! Everyone can hear the same music!

Yes, but I'd be using my own wireless (or you or zak's), not other random people that I don't know.
