No half-baked solution to weak WiFi signal

Proving that solving a common technology problem like weak-WiFi reception need not be a Heath Robinson affair, in fact the complete opposite is former BT chief technology officer Peter Cochrane.

On a boat on the Norfolk Broads, Cochrane was unable to find a strong enough WiFi signal, although there were several open access, according to the Telegraph.

Undaunted, the technophile decided to have a look at what he had at his disposal  in the boat’s galley and improvise to get online.

The solution was simple, but effective. Cochrane simply used a baking tray to focus the strongest WiFi signal, and hey presto!
