Reach a certain level of fame in Europe and you've got two choices: rest on your laurels, or risk it all for a shot at America. It's one transatlantic journey that few careers survive, but the latest to try is Spanish muni-fi outfit Fon. Buy one of the company's $60 WiFi hotspots and it'll portion off a your chunk of your home bandwidth for public use. The benefit to you, of course, is that you'll be able to take advantage of the same facility when you're out and about. The new Fonera hardware doubles as a network extender, but that's not the only trick hiding up its plastic sleeve. Any of your Facebook friends who visit your home will be recognized by the system and granted WiFi access without you having to share out your password -- assuming, of course, that you want to.
