Plane Passenger Renames Wi-Fi Device To ‘Galaxy Note 7’ And Causes Chaos During A Flight

Apparently, carrying a Galaxy Note 7 is the equivalent of carrying a bomb onboard.

Perhaps it is without any exaggeration when we say that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the most ‘explosive’ device released in 2016. This, of course, is quite literal since the company recalled them because of several reports of explosion.

Meanwhile, the internet has been merciless about the mistake and netizens everywhere posted the harshest and most hilarious reactions to the exploding gadget.

Funnily, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is making another headline – thanks to this brilliant guy who renamed his Wi-Fi device after the notorious product while he is on a flight.

As we all know, the United States Department of Transportation has implemented a strict ban on the device in order to prevent any potential disasters.

So the passengers and crew of a recent Virgin America flight from San Francisco to Boston were startled to discover that a Wi-Fi device was named after it.

Lucas Wojciechowski, one of the passengers, found out about it when he turned his laptop on.

So yes, it wasn’t a Galaxy Note 7 in the first place but some genius just thought it would be fun to rename his Wi-Fi after that notorious phone.

In an interview with BBC, Wojciechowski said no further action was taken against the passenger but he hopes this incident will serve as a lesson for others. He suggests using non-threatening names like “puppies on a plane” perhaps.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Booster Chair Noticed By The Internet, Gave Birth To Hundred Of Memes

Mark Zuckerberg may have faced Facebook’s latest issue, but the Internet isn’t the one to easily forgive and forget.

In the past few days, Mark Zuckerberg has been the talk of the town due to Facebook's involvement in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The social media giant and the political consulting firm are facing major backlash for obtaining data from over 87 million users for the purpose of supplying the said information to politicians who hired them.

Last April 10, Zuckerberg was invited to give his testimony before the United States Congressional Committee. The proceedings were aired on national TV and was likewise posted online. He was called to answer the issues but one of the things that later captured the internet's attention was his booster chair.
