So, for various reasons I won’t bother listing, I decided it was high time to get a mobile broadband card and service. I’d been thinking about it for quite some time, but the extra monthly expense has kept me merely thinking about it. So yesterday, I was reading Pogue’s Posts and David Pogue reviewed the Sierra/Sprint Wireless Compass 597. I usually read his posts the day they come out, but this was from last month. Not sure how I missed it the first time, but I read it at just the right moment. At lunch today, I went to a local Sprint store and signed up. I’m posting this using my new connection. As you can see, it’s not super duper fast, though I was running a few things at the same time during the connection test – including Google Earth – so I’m not being fair. Either way, I’m already so excited about my new found freedom! And I can hardly wait to answer my 8 year old’s at least weekly question, “Do we have Internet in the car?” She’s going to be thrilled to get onto Webkinz on her way to Nana’s house! And even more thrilled to be AT Nana’s house with access to Webkinz! Nana and Papa don’t even have a computer!
