Google Wireless in Mountain View

Yesterday, at the Mountain View Art and Wine Festival, I ran into the Google Wireless booth. For those that don’t know, Google is providing ‘free’ wireless to all of the city of Mountain View. They’ fixed routers around lamppoles all over the city. Below you can see the repeaters you can buy that will boost your signal inside your house.

Of course, I tested it out on their laptop and accessed techmeme.com with rapid speed. To me, this makes living or working in Mountain View more desirable.
