Wi-Fi sniffer provokes pong of controversy

Reader Tim Instone writes regarding the Wi-Fi sniffer watch, “There seems to be a serious point lurking in here somewhere. A Wi-Fi sniffer that tells you there is a signal is pointless if it does not also tell you about access.

“Since all sniffers can do is detect a signal, requiring you to fire up some other device to evaluate it, they are a waste of space.

“Have you ever thought of a Darwin-style award for people who would improve IT by having nothing to do with it? Maybe a trophy involving a single digit? Or two if they can count that far?”
