Re: making public wifi safer
The problems outlined for this Wi-Fi hotspot are really no different than the hotspots at every coffee shop in New York City . Unless users take their own security precautions on their devices they run the risk of their information being hacked at any public hotspot . I do however think this is a good idea since the payphones are really an eyesore New York City . I also like the idea of charging stations , after hurricane Sandy so many people were without electricity . Public charging spots would be a lifesaver in any kind of disaster that impaired electricity . Public charging stations are really part of her communication system as a country now . Implementing more of them should be a priority .
