The JoyPoll was...
What's wrong here?
  • Stealing bandwidth is wrong.
  • The lamer is only surfing Google... he should be downloading warez.
  • She should keep her eyes on the road!
  • If they were in an accident, the passenger air bag would impact the laptop and it would decapitate him.
  • She should leave him, he doesn't deserve her!
  • Instead of complaining, she should be holding an antenna to increase his range!

A little blurb about the comic:
This comic is about a geeky couple having their Big Day Out. She has it mind that they'll be driving their Ford car to the country for a little rest and relaxation. He, on the other hand, is having the time of his life with his Apple PowerBook computer. He's got RouteBuddy, a GPS receiver (actually a Global Stat BT-328 Bluetooth GPS), hooked up so he can watch them inch along on a map, and make sure they don't take a wrong turn. He's got special, wardriving software that detects wifi wireless networks, and makes little noises when it detects a wifi. In this cartoon, he's actually found a wireless network that isn't password protected, no security, so he can just log onto the net and surf as he pleases. I suggest wardriving, it's a fun past time, and for some reason it's very exciting when you can surf the web on someone else's bandwidth. You feel sneaky, kinda naughty. The woman in the comic, as I said, had planned a day outside, away from the computer. She was thinking; hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, going to a movie, dining out, a romantic walk on the beach, hand in hand. You know, a date, what dating people do! Now it looks like she'll be stuck driving the Ford SUV or stationwagon, all over the suburbs, as her companion squeals in geek glee over what his Apple computer can do. Thank goodness they didn't go on a week long road trip, imagine that agony!
