One takes eyes to read, and the other takes quite a bit of sophistication. One takes time, skill, talent, or money to find someone to develop, the other takes eyes and the ability to read English, or access to someone who does, but it's totally justified in your mind, so whatever.
Time? skill? money?
Sorry, very little of any of that.
All you need is a wifi card, a computer and some specialized software.
You simply download some wifi password sniffing software, there's a bunch, and if the network is secure get good old Aircrack-NG to hack it.
Now download a war driving program, they have them for laptops or smart phones, then just start driving around like Google did and record all the networks you pass.
Once you have those networks logged, go back and sniff and hack to your hearts content.
It's easy, freely available, and criminals do it all the time [webmasterworld.com].
Google did far less, the whole thing is idiotic.
I'm not sure why people are arguing in favor of flawed insecure wifi technology because no matter how many arguments you make or laws you pass because...
WIFI WON'T GET ANY MORE SECURE UNTIL YOU TOSS IT AND START OVER!
