Stardust Global Ventures » Nomadic Computing - Mobile? Casual? Or just evolution?
...many of us are becoming technology nomads, carrying less and less with us in our daily travels because we know where the oasis (of WiFI rather than water)...
Oh if only it was that easy in Australia. There are so few open WiFi spots here (mainly because if the high cost of net access) that it's a real struggle to wander and work. There are a few pay per use services (e.g. Telstra) -- however they can be very expensive. We are seeing a lot of 3G wireless services being pushed as well, but cost is again an issue and they are limited to business use.
Maybe one day we'll get cheap pervasive networking here (I know it's better that many places in the world, but for a modern economy it's pretty poor)
