LaptopFriendlyCafes

Cafes with free wifi along with your cup of coffee are listed on laptopfriendlycafes.com. There is already a good selection as I found out by typing in my local area of London, and it’s also international with wifi hotspot cafés around the world. If your favourite wifi cafes aren’t listed you can submit them and also give your review of the venues.

The designers say they started the site after compiling information for their own use when out and about with their laptops looking for wifi connections, and like many good sites it has been built from the real and practical needs of its designers. Cafes are easily found using Search, and you can also use the information on your iPhone. The other main options on the toolbar are quick submission of a café, and an option to have your café features and promoted prominently on the main pages.

The iPhone application is interactive and automatically finds the nearest wifi café depending on your location. By tapping it you can get the location on a Google map and you can also see all the other cafes in the surrounding area. It also lets you browse by café or location name. The iPhone application is for New York, London, Melbourne and Sydney. The laptop application has a greater variety of cities and is growing all the time.

Geid – Wifi Protection

The dangers of using a laptop to browse the internet while in wifi hotspots, including popular cafes, has been in the headlines. Watchdog showed how easy it is for hackers to share our information while we’re online as the wifi works as a network they can access. People are looking for ways to keep their wifi communication secure, so a site like Geid could prove popular.

Geid has a system called SecureConnect which encrypts and keeps data secure while you’re using wifi, and at the moment the site is offering a free trial period, so it’s worth taking advantage of this protection. The site also has a blog with information about keeping your computer and communications secure. It’s a new site which has started up just as wifi security is a hot topic, and with users worried about whether and how to use the internet while in public places the products and the information available at Geid should be useful.
