No home internet, duh!

There’s a post forever ago I made on here, 2006, it was about how I was using one of those PCMCIA (ha!!!) cards on my laptop that was basically a little cellphone from Sprint that gave you a web connection wirelessly.  I was obsessed with this whole concept of properly wireless internet.  Even since I was in high school when I wanted to make a Packet Ham Radio modem for my TI-80whatever calculator.  Wow…nerd out.  Google “packet radio”.  Anyway, like 2 years ago I actually committed to this whole thing - cancelled internet at my condo and added the “tethering” service on my iPhone and bought a cellular iPad too.  My friends were like?!!?  It seemed silly until LTE became commonplace and now my cellphone has faster internet than most coffee shops and offices - everywhere I go.  iPad and iPhone combined I go through like 16-18GB per month, so its not the most cost effective - but whatever - its not that far off in price.  Remember when people were like “man, I don’t think I need a landline anymore…”???  #always #internet #everywhere
