Hello World from Up In The Air

I'm currently flying on board Delta Airlines from New York City to Salt Lake City. The plane is offering free Wi-Fi service until Jan 3 (tomorrow). So even though I'm really sleepy for having to wake up at 4am today, I just had to try the experience.

The speed is pretty fantastic and rivals wireline DSL service. Each session lasts for 45 minutes only. But you can just close your browser and re-login. Lots of people are using their laptops and iPads on board. When it goes commercial, the airline will charge about USD12 for the service (not sure if that is only still for 45 mins). Would be great to have this service in PAL or CEB in the future. Yeah, maybe 10 years from now.
