Nothing really says Thanksgiving like a turkey with a big old blast of WiFi radiating from its cloaca, does it?

Wireless access point provider Xirrus Inc. appears to think so, tweeting out this fowl image to celebrate the Pilgrims' first harvest festival Tuesday.

Wait -- what? Of course it's a fun graphic of a feathered hotspot... what else could it represent?

The best thing is that the RF frontend silicon really helps to seal in the tenderness as you cook the bird.

Ah yes, there'll be lots of folks eating Turkey this year with wireless signals thankfully abundant everywhere we go. Now if we can only turn off the phones and the tablets during the big dinner.

One way to bring the tweens to the table? Make your turkey a hotspot.

Turkey's end-to-end WiFi solution
Poultry editor? You cannot be Xirrus. This blog is pure gobble-di-gook. It's stuffing and nonsense. (Other puns are available.)

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
