HUB + WiFi = No Internet?

WiFiI haven’t been on the internet in the HUB yet this semester, but apparently the Wi-Fi/VPN is not being friendly to the throngs of internet-hungry students. And while the HUB isn’t currently on ITS’s list of Wireless 2.0 locations, it might be worth it to get your computer set up for Wireless 2.0 so you’re good to go when the program spreads across campus.

I wrote an article last May on how to access the trial Wireless 2.0 system. Check it out here. Any computer/device that currently supports the Penn State VPN should work fine with the new system. If you have questions, please direct them to the ITS Helpdesk at [email protected].

If you know of any other buildings that are currently sporting the Wireless 2.0 system, let us know in the comments. You’ll know it’s the Wireless 2.0 system if the SSID (network name) is “psu”.

Question of the Day: Sweet Mobile Apps

AT&T is sponsoring a pretty cool competition in which entrants can win $10,000 cash in scholarship money for creating a mobile device application. Teams of up to four people can enter a custom-built application for the purpose of e-learning.  The rules state that the “innovating e-learning mobile app” should be functional across multiple platforms. Submissions are due by September 15, 2010 and so far there are only ten teams signed up. So my question for you is:

If you could develop a mobile device application, what would it do?
