*yawn* Trendnet has had, for a couple years now, a hotspot finder with the same features (multiple networks, SSID, signal strength, LCD display, etc.) but that ALSO can plug into a usb port and be used as a wireless adapter for the computer (and even re-charges the battery when plugged in) for quite some time and has sold for around $30.00 (after rebate.) The newer model even has 512M of flash memory AND has the drivers on a CD-ROM emulator memory chip so that you don’t need to carry around the CD to install it on a new computer. See newegg for details.
