Blogging from a parking lot…

Mar 28, 2007

I’m 15 minutes early for an appointment and I really need to catch up on a few emails.  But there’s no WiFi anywhere to be found.  What do I do?  Ah ha!  I use my Palm Treo 700p to log on and beam the signal from my phone via Bluetooth to my MacBook Pro…and viola!  I’m blogging!  And not catching up on emails…. 

Anyway….  Technology still blows my mind sometimes.  The fact that I can be on a high speed connection wirelessly from my car in the middle of a parking lot.  How cool is that?!   The speed isn’t the greatest (a little under 400kbps per second for download) but good enough to check email and blog. 

Gotta go, now I’m late….
