Google HotSpot – find free wifi hotspots
This was an April Fool’s Joke, as Google never released a service as the one mentioned below.
Google recently launched Google HotSpot, a new service to search for free wireless access points (wi-fi) from your computer or phone. With an interface similar with Google Maps, not only it lets you find free wi-fi hotspots (and give directions on how to get there), but you can also save their location (for future use) or even add ones that you have found and used. The best part about this is that it’s not limited to US only, so you can search for hotspots in other countries too. Though it gave me a couple of 404 errors while trying it, I managed to take a screenshot:
You can access this service here: Google HotSpot (if you get a 404 page try later, it seems to be overloaded now. Anyway, until they’ll be providing free wi-fi all over the world (not only in the city of Mountain View via Google WiFi), you can still use other free wifi hotspots indexed by Google.
