Check Out My New Geek Toy!

They just released this Sunday and mine arrived yesterday. I'm on it now and it's really slick! I travel quite a bit and had the older giant USB stick and it worked well. This is much nicer and I can connect while it's in my laptop bag. Here's the link for the review.

Sure That's what's cool about this. When I travel with my programming team, we can use this as a portable hotspot. I gave it the "youtube test" and it streamed the video's with no problem. Also, I'm grandfathered in on the unlimited plan so I can download movies while on the road and watch them on the plane. This thing is a must for all road warriors.

cool thing

This was just reviewed on the GDGT podcast. They liked it a lot! Just the thing for the multi-computational traveling family.
