Happy birthday, dear Pringles Can antenna! Happy birthday to you! It was 10 years ago today that the first 12db Pringles Can antennas were created, allowing hax0rs to grab Wi-Fi from their neighbors with relative ease (until the rise of simple network security.)
First created by Rob Flickenger and friends, the antennae saved hackers hundreds of dollars and beat out the Wi-Fi professional gear of the period.
Let’s all don our party hats and thank the great Wi-Fi gods for sharing the fire with Rob and friends.
