Wednesday, June 29, 2005 -PARKING METER WIFI - Computing

Houston is using parking meters to dispense WIFI to its citizens. Corpus Christi has lit up 24 square miles with free WIFI and is on the way to 147 square miles. The citizens love it, SBC does not!

SBC and other telecoms are trying to block municipal WIFI. I picture a man with a pitchfork trying to stop an avalanche. The benefits are too good and the cost are low.

On the way home from the beach, I fumed when I went through a cell phone dead zone. I was frustrated that our car is not internet equipped. Once one is in the habit of being always connected, one suffers withdrawal pains when one is not connected.

WIFI is going to be another biggie! BUY THE BULL!
