Microsoft Ad Campaign Puts a Hotspot Inside a Magazine 194

from the now-there's-a-premium dept.
An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft is putting in real Wi-Fi hardware hotspots inside some copies of the latest issue of Forbes magazine. The unique Office 365 promotion was revealed in a post on the message board. The WiFi router, when activated, offers 15 days of free WiFi service via T-Mobile's network on up to five devices at once." Which is more impressive: Wi-Fi hotspot in 2013, or E-ink display in 2008?

    From the slickdeals thread:

    "it takes you (when it works) to, nowhere else."

    I can't confirm that, but I would be surprised if Microsoft gave away 15 days of unrestricted Internet access to anyone and everyone who simply picked up a Forbes magazine. But who knows.

    It's also not confirmed if you can buy this on the news stand or if it's just for Forbes subscribers. So far I've only read of people getting it via subscription.
