Infinite Solutions: Elaborate Hoax?Mikey 14 comments
You have to see these videos to believe them. Mark Erickson hosts a series of short technical spots under the moniker Infinite Solutions which have been making the rounds at YouTube.
The tips and tricks Erickson shows seem convincing enough but the community is divided on their authenticity. In one particular video (see the 3rd video below), Erickson shows us how to increase your wi-fi strength using a cat-5 cable, a mobile phone, some aluminium foil and a salad bowl. MacGyver would be proud.
But the real fuss is surrounding his method to get access to an alleged Google TV beta program. Some people claim it works while others say it is a technical impossibility. Erickson has made a follow-up video assuring us this is not a hoax (see both videos below), but this author still has doubts.
If this is a hoax, kudos to Erickson for going to such great lengths to make it convincing. See the videos below and judge for yourself.
