blog Yes, you read the headline right. In what appears to be yet another stroke of marketing genius, Telstra has paid some larrikin (or is it one of its own employees?) to cut a square shape in a common thong, and insert a 3G modem to create a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot … before heading to “the chicken shop” wearing it.
The ingenuity of this idea has to be seen to be believed. In fact, our only question is, when will this revolutionary product go on the market? And secondly, when is Telstra going to get off its couchsurfing butt and send us a review model? We promise to road-test it in the harshest of conditions — grabbing a few beers with the tradies on a Friday afternoon at the Coogee Beach Hotel.
