We surely don't need to talk about iPads or Android tablets again. If you have a pulse, you know all about them.

There are a few newsletter subjects that always generate a lot of emails, questions, arguments, and debates. WiFi is one of them. But last week's response of 400+ emails and comments was, well, a little too much love! It's our policy to respond to all questions and comments.
