Wi-Fi in a Car - Response

Tuesday, January 23, 2007 7:08 AM

Brian posted about a service that's going to add wi-fi to Avis rental cars. I tried to post a comment on his blog about whether I thought this would be useful, but for some reason hitting the Submit button did nothing (Jeff - possible bug with the skin and/or IE 7?)

So anyway, here's my response:

I can see it being beneficial if the car didn't come with a built in GPS device. That way, if you got lost, you could check Google Maps or some other service with your laptop or PDA.

Or, if you're a mobile salesperson and you're renting the car to drive to a bunch of meetings in a different city, having wi-fi is a great way to keep in contact with the office without using up cell phone data use or having to dial in with a cell phone.

So I think it'll have its usage for sure.
