Who wouldn't want their car to broadcast a mobile WiFi signal? Nothing says "it's the freaking future" like bringing wireless Internet with you wherever you go. Why should driving through the deserts of New Mexico or braving the icy roads of distant Canada mean your passengers can't get a WiFi signal? It shouldn't. And, thanks to Ford's new Sync in-car connectivity system, it won't any more. All you'll need to do is plug your mobile broadband USB modem into the Sync's USB port. The system will produce a secure wireless connection throughout the vehicle. All of your passengers will be able to use the Internet on road trips now. That takes care of useless, extraneous tasks like "sightseeing" and "exploration" nicely. Now your children will never need to be apart from their blessed Facebook ever again.The Sync WiFi system has no monthly cost of its own. It works with whatever mobile Internet service you already have. The default security for all networks it creates will be WPA2. Each device that connects to the signal will need to be approved of by the driver.
