  1. With new modern forms of wi-fi being developed, there are two things to consider: data compression efficiency and raw speed (which is dependent on frequency).  For raw speed, this creates an interesting trade-off: high frequency wi-fi networks can be incredibly fast (some more than 50x faster than normal, not that it matters with most ISPs limitations), but they can't penetrate through walls nearly as well.  That's why modern routers usually operate on two or more frequencies, one for longer range and one for high-speed, in-room connections.

  2. There would be much less ice skating and the Titanic wouldn't of sunk... and snow might be quite weird, if it still existed.  The oceans might have some interesting convection patterns and the Antarctic would probably be much different.  While I don't know for sure, it's an interesting thing to ponder.
