After the yarn of the yak header and the Wifi network
, here's another touching tale of technology's ability to make the world a slightly better place:"The world's dwindling panda population is getting a helping hand from a wireless internet network. The Wolong Nature Reserve in the Sichuan Province of southwest China is home to 20% of the remaining 1,500 giant pandas in the world. A broadband and wireless network installed on the reserve has allowed staff to chronicle the pandas' daily activities.....It includes a 802.11b wireless network and a video monitoring system using five cameras to observe pandas around the clock. Before the new infrastructure arrived at the panda park, staff walked or drove to deliver floppy disks across the reserve."
Everyone say "aaaaw, cute".
Just love those Pandas.
Apart from this and hooking your Pocket PC up to wireless networks, what's the best use of Wifi that you've heard about?
