When is free wifi not always a good thing...
Matt talks about an experience I've noticed as well... you get to an airport and you say "Hey, free wifi, that's so cool!" and then you realize that some ports are blocking and you can't do all the things you wanted to do in that time your plane is held over. It gets back to that net neutrality again, where the pipe you log on to is able to allow you to do what you want it to do.
I always carry my Cingular Wireless card for the PC so that no matter where I'm at, if it can get cell phone connection, I can get online...and if I'm at a place without cell phone coverage...man that is roughing it way too much for my level of comfort.
