Sorry for the lack of posts, but I’ve been busy over at Obsessable and meeting up with the Crowd Fusion team last week. Barb has a great picture of yours truly demonstrating how abnormally high I can kick for a robust and rotund man:
Notice the blurring. Is it because I’m incredibly fast or because the iPhone’s shutter speed is incredibly slow? You may never know.
In any case, being in a hotel sharing shoddy WiFi with a bunch of heavy users combined with the problems Kristin and I have been having with our Cablevision connection at home as of late (it’s been going down daily and our TV is plagued with digital noise; a technician is coming Tuesday to look at it), has me thinking that I should get a broad range wireless solution as a nice backup for my home connection and to use for whenever I’m on the road / out on Long Island visiting Kristin’s parents. Randall wrote up a nice overview of HSDPA vs EVDO vs WiMAX, but I was wondering what you, my wonderful readers use.
Ideally, I’d love a solution that both gave me connectivity everywhere and some sort of WiFi access point account as well (like T-Mobile HotSpot or AT&T’s variant thereof). Also, all of the current options have a 5GB data cap per month (with the exception of T-Mobile who doesn’t appear to have good coverage yet in my area). How is a power user like me supposed to play Warhammer Online and stream Hulu videos wherever I go with a 5GB data cap?!
I’d love to hear what everyone uses / prefers and if you have any workarounds to get around that 5GB data cap. Right now I’m leaning towards just waiting until WiMAX is available.
ps—Remember, if you were thinking about buying a new Apple laptop, wait until after Tuesday. I’m probably going to get one of whatever they announce.
pps—Congrats to Mahalo and my old team on the homepage relaunch and redesign. Looks great!
