For the last four hours, I've been hurtling down the highway at an average speed of 74 MPH, in the passenger seat of a hybrid electric vehicle.

I'm using a laptop that costs less than $100 and has 10+ hours of battery life , connected to the internet through a magical slab of glass I call a phone.

That laptop has an RDP connection to my office desktop, which has a VPN connection to a client network, which enables me to RDP to their system across the globe.

I've had several people PM me in reference to this post criticizing me for RDPing over an insecure adhoc wireless network and a cellular connection.

I'm not doing that.

The wifi connection is WPA2 encrypted, my connection to my work machine is actually through a VPN, and the RDP connections are required to be tunneled through SSH, for reasons I've never entirely understood.

I'm not just driving down the road passing client data around in the clear, y'all.

@ajroach42 Yeah, but imagine the chase scene!

"Follow that car! No, closer—I'm hacking his wifi..."
