Default wi-fi security

My son Rory has just bought himself an iPod Touch. It's a fantastic little machine with really good graphics. It's just an mp3 player, video player and web browser all in one.

What has surprised him though is the lack of of wi-fi security in local houses – when he walked through our town – he pressed wi-fi scan just to see how many networks were in the area. He found quite a few, and over half had no password to connect to their network.

It worrying what some people could do with more sophisticated machine.
