Team PAD

Saturday. Defcon. 11:00am. The (WiFi) shot heard 'round, um, 125 mile stretch of land. That's right, Team PAD fired unamplified WiFi from Vegas to St. George, Utah—that's 125 full miles up in there. Congratulations, boys; now go live it up in Sin City while you've still got a chance, ok? Shooting WiFi signals two hours down the highway doesn't really qualify you to be in a commercial for the whole "What happens here, stays here" thing.
