Re: Starbucks guy
Pros: They managed to fit a wireless antenna inside an SD card. I never thought that would be possible. Not to mention the actual 8GB of storage, and the logic to handle all of it. Crazy small technology!
Cons: The wireless antenna is roughly the size of an SD card. For you non-RF-tech people out there, this means that range is going to be pretty limited, just as a rule of thumb. Not 100% always the case, but just in general...
Other Thoughts: Obvious technical limitations are no reason for dropping 1-stars on stuff. It's like buying a Smart-car and then bashing it because it lacks horsepower. What do you expect?

Don't expect it to work at Starbucks
Pros: a great idea but I'd only recommend the device for someone using it on a personal network, not a hotspot wifi connection.
Cons: The manufacturer advertises the device as being able to use with the AT&T wifi signal at Starbucks locations. I've tried it at several and you have to be very close to Starbuck's router----not something that is usually possible.
Other Thoughts: the company should really stop marketing it as a hotspot device as its not reliable for that in my experience.
