Inflight Wireless

September 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments

I am posting this flying from Atlanta to Newark 33,000 feet in the air.

When I found out that the Delta flight had WiFi, I had to try it out. The price is $9.95 for the full flight (about 2 hours). The speed is quite good. This is my first inflight wireless experience.  I always like to try out different things, and I could not resist the temptation to do my first blog post from the sky.

I am not sure I want to always use WiFi when travelling on flights. The time in the sky is my deep thinking time — especially on international flights. But it is good to have the choice.I had a couple urgent emails to sen, and this connection sure came in handy!

    Hi Rajesh,

    Any plans to come to California? I really enjoyed meeting you last September when you came for some presentation in San Francisco.

    Regards,

    Connectivity is good and a boon to mankind. But sometimes i feel it has taken “the time off” that you want to spend with yourself and close-to-yourself.

    Now what stops people from live broadcasting whats happening inside the flight with a webcam?
