Wireless home networks are everywhere. If you drive or walk your neighborhood with your iPad or iPhone WiFi connection turned on, you'll likely find dozens of names, many of them listed generically as 'home', 'linksys', 'netgear', or simply as the owner's last name. And many of these networks are unprotected.
