What the? Part 2

General February 11th, 2007

Was logging in to MacD’s wireless network when the router redirected me to register with http://www.mobik.com. What the??? So I tried Starhub’s Wireless, which unfortunately is not free, and so I went back to MacD’s network and sold my soul phone number for internet access.

I have a bad feeling that I am going to get lots of phone spam soon. It’s no longer just the good ol’ login page at MacD’s; it’s probably going to be number-for-internet_access soon, that is, you have to give them (mobik?) your phone number so that they can eventually spam you (?) in order for you to surf the net for free.

There’s really no free lunch in this world. 🙁
