Can't connect to WiFi?!

The other day at the gym, the T.V. was on BNN channel and they were discussing Apple's iphone 5.  The two news reporters were impressed by the gadget's features; while expressing their fondness for various features of the phone they kept incorrectly interchanging Internet with WiFi.  
Internet is not the same as WiFi!
It is incorrect to say we [cannot] connect to WiFi.  We can connect to Internet, a group of computers connected together, via WiFi, technology that allows any computer with wireless network interface controller to connect to another through radio frequency and without using any wire.
