If there's no password t's like an invitation ;)
 
If there IS a password, it's even more like invitation for me. :D
 
If it has pasword - challenge accepted, if not - free internet ;_;
 
Sets up wifi hotspot named "Free harmless internet" ...
 
"This wifi hotspot WILL NOT snoop on your data!"

I circled Opera because I'm a web developer, but I find this feed is at odds with what I'd expect from a pioneering browser developer. Questions like "A smart phone is smart because _____" and "Is it called stealing if a WIFI signal is trespassing in YOUR house?" just don't seem befitting of Opera. I can't quite explain why, but maybe it's that those two are examples of wishy-washy straw polls that ultimately mean little in comparison to the innovations that Opera has brought us.

I mean, if you're collating the information from the responses to help make Opera better then I'm willing to learn how and be educated, but I can't see how gauging how ill-informed people are about wi-fi is going to make a difference.
 
I'd rather see some changes in API's presented with simple examples or something more techy. How about you split your circles into "Nerds", and "muggles"? ;)

+Rob Foxx This is great, thanks for your feedback - we appreciate your thoughts! We will start sharing more content which is relevant for developers - and less nonsense.

+Maurycy Damian Wasilewski That's a good idea - we might look into that, although I think we might call it something different. :)
 
Names are seen by you only, so suit yourselves ;). Also, I'm the first volunteer to be added to more technical circle!
 
If the signal is open, i think you can use it

+Rob Foxx I disagree. Not only are the responses fun to read, questions like these also makes Opera feel more relaxed. Search for Opera ads and have a great laugh while you're at it to :-) 
 
+Johan Ottosson I'm not saying they can't have fun with their feed, it's just that I can read stuff that stems from Reddit posts on Facebook... or even just go to Reddit itself if I want to take part in uninformed debate. 

The Google Chrome Developer feed and the Mozilla feed show that those guys are pushing the boundaries of what their products can do and they want to inform and motivate developers to take part.

The social media strategy of the Opera feed appears to be re-posting stuff they saw elsewhere in the hope that people join in with the silly. Personally I just don't believe that kind of thing is befitting of the company that took browsers out of the dark ages with innovations like tabs and mouse gestures.
 
if this wifi is public then its not stealing but u can always have fun in other people network :D
 
+Rob Foxx, I wholeheartedly understand but disagree with you ... these aren't official release update feeds - they are social network musings on all things internet - and people whom want to participate, express their support and appreciation for the software they use, they are not developers and could care less about such updates. 

+Opera should do itself and it's developer network a favor by opening a Dev Page (if there's an audience) ... but ... at least they don't post pictures of foxes all day long... like some, cough +Mozilla Firefox cough. 
 
+Petar Subotic Fair enough. I guess if the +Opera posting policy is more for entertainment than education I can just switch them out of my Developers circle.

+Rob Foxx If you're a heavy developer I suggest you look into http://dev.opera.com/labs if you haven't already! Fantastic resource and I think it has the technical depth you're looking for.

Perhaps +Opera should start a new +Operadevs page on G+ where they go more in depth in technical matters? I'd love it for sure! 
 
It could save a life,and no its not stealing,but moderate use is best
 
my phone can't conect to computer
 
yes bcoz that line who cost 4 landing then i say its stealing! :)
 
muy buena actualización. nuevas extensiones. cool

Opera SHOULD post questions like this: responses are amusing :)
And I believe its okay to use if the WiFi isn't protected :)
 
So the question here then is whether a WiFi signal is like a fruit laden branch hanging over your yard, or a service of his that you can piggyback. ... I suppose if it has a password it would indicate that he values it and is trying to protect it... no password means he wants to be a good neighbor and share. 
 
"he wants to be a good neighbor and share. "
I would say he is being a bad neighbor creating interference slowing down my own connection.
