From time to time I get invited to review various things here on my blog. I usually turn those invitations down, but sometimes I’m intrigued and agree. That’s what happened back in December, not long after I purchased the Inateck PCI-E to USB 3.0 Expansion Card that I wrote about yesterday. Someone from Inateck emailed … Continue reading Review: Inateck USB 3 Enclosure & Wireless Presenter Stick
I’ve been thinking a lot about wi-fi again lately. I say again because it’s a topic I have written about on this blog for over eight years! Here’s what I wrote in September 2005: What’s my mantra? Wireless Everywhere! I look forward to the day when wireless is like oxygen; everywhere you go, it’s there. … Continue reading Wireless Internet throughout Edmonton with Shaw Go WiFi
Since 2004, the Edmonton International Airport has offered wireless Internet access, for a fee. As at many other airports, it was operated by Boingo. Unless you were already a Boingo subscriber, it just wasn’t worth it to get connected for an hour or two, and many people griped (myself included) about the lack of free … Continue reading Free Wireless Internet Lands at the Edmonton International Airport

And despite being down for much … Continue reading Where do you want free wireless Internet access in Edmonton?
I’m not entirely sure what a “library of the future” might look like, but I’m certain it would have readily available wireless Internet access. Actually that idea isn’t very futuristic at all – many libraries now offer free Wi-Fi service to patrons, such as the Edmonton Public Library (EPL). Launched in early February, the EPL’s … Continue reading Wireless Internet at the Edmonton Public Library
My sister and I came down to Red Deer last night to visit Tom. He’s on the Kings soccer team, so we figured we’d come down to watch his game today. Today is the second last game of the season, and I think it’s fair to say that the Kings are looking forward to the … Continue reading Wireless at Red Deer College
And I thought the biggest news in Anaheim was that the Mighty Ducks are now known as the Ducks! But nope, it’s not. The latest city to embrace my mantra is indeed Anaheim, which announced the new wireless network today with a ceremonial cable cutting: Curt Pringle, the mayor of Anaheim, cut a thick blue … Continue reading Anaheim goes wireless
The wireless here seems to be quite speedy and reliable, so I am going to post pictures throughout the day instead of waiting. Check them out at Flickr!
It appears that New Orleans will be the next city to implement free, city-wide wireless Internet access. Yes, that New Orleans, the one that was completely submerged in water a few months ago courtesy Hurricane Katrina. Seems that the devastation of the city is what brought on the free WiFi: New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin … Continue reading Free wireless for New Orleans!
