WiFi is great but it's not always available. This week I was on business travel and the WiFi connection in my room was extremely weak and I couldn't get a reliable internet connection at the hotel or the airport.
At the suggestion of a friend, I bought an EVDO card for my laptop. Now I get high speed (300-500kbps) wireless access virtually everywhere. It's amazing. I subscribed to the Verizon service but you can sign up for Sprint as well.
This is the card I bought. It works great on my Powerbook.
Our friend Jackie has created and launched Sponge.
Sponge is a school in Seattle that offers Spanish, French, Mandarin and Japanese language/culture classes for children (newborn - 5 years). It is very cool and wish there was something like this in Boston.
