I just read an aritcle by CNBC (http://www.cnbc.com/id/41005646?slide=6) that said "If you're going to be making online transactions over an unsecured wireless connection like in cafes, parks and other hot spots, data can be compromised or seen while in transit, even if you're on a secure page..."  How is this possible?  I thought when browsing an HTTPS page (SSL), that it encrypted the connection from your browser all the way through to the webserver?
