Microsoft implants Wi-Fi hotspots on Forbes' magazines to promote Office 365

Apart from its "usual" features and insights, the first week edition of Forbes magazine for the month of May seem to have a special added feature. Microsoft is reportedly promoting the latest Office 365 with an added twist: turning the magazines into Wi-Fi hotspots. The May 6, 2013 issue of Forbes magazines came with a custom 4-page insert complete with a Wi-Fi router inside. Isn't that sweet?

A member of the Slickdeals forum, handle BigMacG4, first drew attention to the unusual copies of Forbes magazine. A Microsoft spokesperson later confirmed to Mashable that the first week of May edition of magazines were Wi-Fi capable. 

However, only a limited amount of copies were sent to a selected number of tech and business professionals. Those who received the special issue of the magazine with the custom 4-page insert can enjoy up to 15 days of free Wi-Fi. The router works as a Wi-Fi hotspot together with the use of T-Mobile.

The router can reportedly support up to five devices at a time satisfactorily with its Wi-Fi hotspot capability. But like other routers, the special edition Wi-Fi router needs to be charged to enjoy connection. Around three hours of free Wi-Fi can be used with each full charge.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
