    Verizon Droid Hotspot


    I have seen more connections to our online radio and TV
    network coming from Verizon networks, and I have found out
    why.

    It turns out that newer models of the Droid have their own
    built-in WiFi hotspot, so if their workplace is using WiFi
    for their networks, one could simply change their workplace
    PC over to use the hotspot in the Droid. All you have to do is
    keep the Droid in their pocket, while its turned on, and
    they can surf where they want to.

    Since Verizon is carrying the traffic, and NOT the office
    LAN, nothing will ever show up in the company network logs.

    It looks like Verizon has effetively rendered all filtering
    software useless. As long as you can get a cellular signal,
    you can use your Droid's hotspot feature, and no record
    will ever show up in the company logs.

    If the company you work for has failed to properly secure your computers
    (company resources), while you might be able to do this, you would still
    be in violation of most company policies and be subject to discipline.

    Your suggested change is easy to detect, the connect/disconnect from the
    network will show up in the logs.
