For Thanksgiving: A Hotspot Logo Most Fowl

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.)
