    Anyone else using their Touch as a WiFi finder? Since the upgrade I am impressed with the range that I can find other WiFi signals as I drive around town.

    I don't go around looking, but it is very scary to see how many unsecured wireless networks are in my neighborhood.

    Wouldn't it be great if the Touch could give of direction as to where the WiFi signal is coming from. I have this one signal that seems to span for several blocks in my area. It sure seems way to far for normal household WiFi, so I would love to pin point its location.
