If you are coming to Skeptics tomorrow for the documentary "There are no dinosaurs in heaven" and you have a Wi-Fi HotSpot on your phone or wireless data card, please, bring it in and come in a few minutes early so we can set it up. We will have Eugenie Scott Skype in after the movie and talk to us.

You may not be aware that you have HotSpot feature on your smart cell phone. So, please, check.

The HotSpot is a feature of your cell phone that allows it to broadcast Wi-Fi so other users can connect through it on their computers to the Internet. It's different than the data plan that you have on your phone to surf the Net and check e-mail directly on your cell phone.

HotSpot is also different form "Wi-Fi" mode you can turn on your phone to connect to some one's Wi-Fi and surf on your cell phone using that Wi-Fi connection.

If you have a wireless data card and actively use it (preferably 4G speeds) but 3 G will work.

Please, if you are bringing your wireless data card bring your laptop and if you don't have Skype installed on it, please, install it and sign up for a free Skype account so you have it.
