Posted in Wi-Fi by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2010

Soon when you hit Sam’s Club to stock up on toilet paper and fruit loops, you’ll also be able to get free internet. That’s because Sam’s Club is working with AT&T to add free WiFi to all its US stores by November. The store will also enable connectivity for its IPTVs so customers can view Web applications like Facebook and Pandora on big-screen TVs before they decide to buy.

Sam’s Club is also planning a smart phone app that will include access to discounts, product information and user reviews.

Has there been a week recently when China-made products have not been in the news? Normally it’s tainted food and toxic lead. Now it’s a malicious virus-infected digital photo frame. Computer Associates identified it as Mocmex , “a nasty worm that has a great deal of intelligence” and “a nuclear bomb of malware”.

It’s a malicious self-propagated worm that has been steadily spreading worldwide with variants of over 67,500 kinds. That’s cause for some concern. It was first identified as a Trojan horse that collected passwords from online games, but after further study, it’s able to get around more than a hundred antivirus vendors as well as Windows security layers. Now it could potentially collect personal and private data.

Gas powered blenderAnd I thought the battery-powered rechargeable blender was handy…

Sams Club has an in store deal going on for this gas-powered blender that is certain to make short work of mixing any drink you can come up with. The blender is powered by a 43cc 2-stroke gas engine mounted on a stand with a stainless steel blender cup and a variable speed throttle to get just the right amount of blending for your drinks. It’s even decorated with diamond-plated accents to give it that classy-tool look. If you can find a store that has them in stock you can walk out with one for about $100.
