There are two words in the English language that are my absolute favourites, Free Wi-Fi! You can forget everything else, with a good wireless connection you can work, surf and stay in touch. Who needs anything else? Nevertheless, you still have to watch these marketing people; they will try anything to catch you out!

Found this the other day, its classic broadband from AOL, in fact its AOL version 9.0 that offers parental controls, music, email, safety and broadband speeds of up 512K all for just £14 per month including a call charges too! Of course, you needed a BT line and you had to live in an area where broadband was available!
Becoming part of something big is not the sort of thing that is offered every day, but this is the vision of Thanasis Zografos and Lazaros Agapides! They have come up with Wefrii and the plan is to allow anyone the ability to create a free wireless broadband network.
Wefrii is run on mesh technology and a cloud controller, this means the network can be managed totally online using the Wefrii suite of services that are already built into the devices and control panel. The potential is clear for any business to provide free Wi-Fi and advertise the business too.
To build a network, you need to add Wefrii points at home, at work and anywhere else, the more points you have the bigger your network becomes and anyone accessing the free wireless will be greeted by a fully customisable landing page with information and advertising on show, which is cool feature on its own.
This is not something that everyone is going to jump on, but for those who can see the potential the Wefrii system is worth looking at further. To get involved with the Wefrii wireless network, you can back the project from just $256 or £160; in return, you will receive a single Wefrii point in Orange.
So what about technology these days? It seems you can’t go from one day to the next without something brand-new being released, leaving you and your out-dated equipment or software looking on like a mini-disc user browsing hopelessly in HMV.
Stop worrying now, as this guide will help you keep up to date with the latest in technology.
iPhones are still probably the most desirable of all the smartphones, especially since they have a new operating system due for release this Autumn, but there are plenty of others out there that might also interest you.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a whopping 13 Megapixels camera, 5 more MPs than the iPhone 5, so keep that in mind if you take lots of photos.
More of a music fan, you say? Well the HTC One packs HTC BoomSound; dual frontal stereo speakers with Beats Audio.
The Internet is a marvellous thing. On it you can talk to friends, do some banking, keep up to date with news, run a whole business and … look at funny cat videos.
With the Internet being such an integral part of our lives these days you need to make sure you have a package that fulfils all your web needs. BT Broadband has a number of packages and offers at great prices, find out more here.
So you’ve got yourself a great broadband package sorted, now let’s see what laptops you can look at all those funny cat videos /carry out that important online banking on (delete as appropriate).
The Sony Fit 15 comes with Intel i5 processing power, 4GB of memory and a whopping 500GB hard drive. However, if you’re a fan of Apple, or you simply want to move away from Windows then the MacBook Pro might be the one for you. It features a stunning Retina display with over 5 million pixels, the latest operating system (OS X Mountain Lion), dual-core Intel Core i5 processors and seven hours of battery life.
Tablets are great for when you’re on the move, as you pretty much have your whole world in your palm. The iPad is perhaps the most widely known tablet available but the Samsung Galaxy Tab2 is also a fantastic piece of kit, boasting an impressive 16MP camera, powerful dual-core processors and Android 4.0 operating system.
