The Neighborhood Network Watch is always looking to incorporate new technologies into its everyday operations. Currently the group has begun to look at the usage of hardware that can function as a smarter “spotter” or wireless network detector. Most of these detectors generally can only detect the presence of a network yet they leave out crucial pieces of data that are vital to the network identification needs of the Neighborhood Network Watch. These include the SSID or name of the network and the type of encryption if any is used. One new technology recently released by Apple Inc. is the iPhone and the iPod Touch. Both include WiFi connectivity and have been fairly customizable in regards to third party applications, not officially but unofficially. The Neighborhood Network Watch has begun to run tests on using the iPod Touch as a potential spotter and actual collection platform.
