We live in times when itâ€™s difficult to imagine having no internet. Weâ€™ve got so used to it, that it is equal in importance as the electricity, and even as the air that we breathe in. One reason for this are the smartphones which have made the world better (or worse, who knows? :)). However, one thing is certain we need internet on these small gadgets 24/7. It is our everyday need, and it was this need that inspired us to incorporate the WIFI feature in the iBackPack.
One day Doug Monahan, our CEO, was driving to his home, when he realized that he was going to miss the appointment with an important client via Skype. And guess why? Because he didnâ€™t have internet, nor he was somewhere near a WIFI hotspot. In simple words he badly needed a WIFI connection for his notebook and at that moment he couldnâ€™t help himself. In those times of necessity, he remembered that Starbucks offers free WIFI connection and the only thing that he could do is prolong a bit his returning home and visit Starbucks. While he was talking with his client, using Starbuckâ€™s WIFI, he was also thinking how to never be without an internet connection and it struck him like a lightning bolt that he can incorporate the WIFI hotspot feature in the backpack. Halleluiah! No more wondering how to share your news, send emails, speak to a client via Skype etc., no more driving with full speed on the road to get home to do all those things aforementioned. All he had to do was just take his notebook out of the backpack and ta-dam he can connect to his own WIFI connection.
But, having a WIFI connection only for you, wouldnâ€™t be so fun and cool, right? Here is where the excitement begins. The WIFI feature that we installed in the iBackPack can be shared – yes, read it twice if you want – shared. You will act as a router and a wifi hotspot and be the favourite friend of your friends. They will be able to connect to your WIFI whenever they want and share their news and stories. They will be grateful to have you as a friend, and you will be grateful to have such an amazing gadget on your side. Letâ€™s change the future together.
