I'd like a wifi booster/relay so that I can sit in the park and work

I have an Mac airport express base station next to the cable modem downstairs. I'd like to sit in my local park and work on my Macbook. Where I sit is about 100 metres away, with a direct line-of-sight to the upstairs of the house, give or take the odd tree branch and squirrel. What I think I need, therefore, is a basic booster station in an upstairs window, that overlooks this park. What options do I have? Any advice appreciated! [more inside]

Cell Signal Boost Out of the Valley

The only un-awesome thing about my new apartment near Tempe, AZ is that neither I nor my roommates are receiving any signal strength on our cell phones due to the low mountains surrounding our location. We all have differerent providers (T-Mobile, Verizon, & AT&T) and not a lot of money. Please help me find a cellular signal booster that doesn't cost an arm and a leg or more than $100. I don't even know how to begin.

Our Babies Need a Booster...

Can anybody tell us what kind of car seat our child should be in? We have 3 and 4 year old children approximately 37" tall and 27 lbs. Their shoulders are about 2" over the top-most shoulder strap slot on their seats. We are not sure if they need a bigger car seat or a booster. Any and all information and recommendations are appreciated. BTW, we have a Toyota Corrola which is relatively small so we can't use some of the Britax models (they are too big for our car).

Mobile phone signal booster

I am looking for a proven, simple and possibly cheap way to boost my mobile phone's signal. Inside my house I have no signal, however on the roof I can sometimes get a signal and make phone calls. I know there are repeaters, but does anyone know of a product that is tried and works well. Oh, and I am on Bell CDMA in Canada
