Wi-Fi weakness sends Adobe camping

I enjoyed a visit to Adobe's travelling Acrobat roadshow the other week. The company's trining 5000 people in the new Acrobat, over the next few months - in a tent.

There's a small presentation theatre, and another room with a Stratus fault-tolerant server, and thirty laptops, each equipped with a scanner and video camera, for people to try the software.

Why in a tent? It's the only way to get a predictable environment where they know it's going to work. In the tent each laptop has a Gig. in a hotel meeting room, they'd be relying on Wi-Fi. And we all know that wouldn't be good enough.
