It was built from open source kit and cheap hardware by a security penetration tester who wanted to make his love of wardriving more nimble. The plans are detailed in a diagram and a video."

    Wireless (cellular) still costs money, and ties your p0rn downloads to you. Sneaking onto some unsuspecting dope's unprotected wifi is much easier.

    Still, the story seems a little odd. Penetration tools on a motorbike make no sense. Even at a walking pace, you are out of range before you can penetrate any other station on the network. On an idling bike, you would certainly arose suspicion.

    The best you can determine is if it is open or not on a drive by.
    But you can do that with any cell phone and Any of several Wardriving tools [].

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
