DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the popular Wi-Fi does not truly mean Wireless Fidelity? Research has provided that Wi-Fi was initially named as an experiment or play on words with Hi-Fi or High Fidelity by Interbrand. However, there were various names for Wi-Fi, say, for example, WaveLAN, FlankSpeed, DragonFly, WECA, and IEEE802.11b Direct Sequence prior to the adoption of the name Wi-Fi. Wireless technology has been widely spread lately and you can get connected almost anywhere; whether one is at indoors or outdoors, the sky is the limit. It is considered as one of the vital commodities that every person must possess. As such, lifehacks have been provided to allow users to utilize it to its fullest. With Wi-Fi, one can turn his smartphone into a remote control, send documents to his printer from any computer or smartphone, stream movies to any TV in the house, share files with nearby computers, stream audio to any speakers in the house, wirelessly transfer photos from his digital camera, tell his phone when it's home (or not), sync his music library, photo library, or other files with his Smartphone USB-free. With the birth of rising technologies, studies have also provided some ways to get free Wi-Fi.
