Some wifi hotspots will let you connect but not let you go anywhere 
until you login to a web page on their proxy (basically, they redirect 
all traffic to a local web server until you login, then they let you 
surf more freely).

Devicescape basically stores info about these sites, and does whatever 
negotiation is necessary.  So, instead of having to do the redirected 
web login at the hotspots you frequent, it makes that step transparent.
