Hopefully you will be able to hook it into your own wireless network when you are at home. ATT is so spotty especially within buildings/garages.
Soon; I will have an internet connection to my butt, to update all my twitter friends if I fart. I would say the internet is every where literally now. Everything moves so fast it is really astounding today. I sent a message to a friend of mind who happens to be a tech evangelist for Microsoft when they were thinking about getting out of the gutter, or if they even had an path way mapped out to do this. Win phone 7 is kind of a joke compared to almost anyone else, they have no tablet, but they do have a lot of mobility apps like office 365/skydrive etc.. It just makes no sense that they don't have a slate or a true mobile (smart phone) presence, but they own the desktop still. How can you recommend it to someone though with it's current limitations be they a business or an individual. Then there are people like ATT they seem to have a lot of presence and in fact will be utterly dominant if the get the T-mobile thing. I hope for there users sake that they do as it seems a whole lot of individuals have difficulties using them as a main connection. These things like cars etc just add to the congestion on the network so they need it.
Wait, do you have to pay for the AT&T service? Seems like everything is getting internet connection nowadays :D
whats next?! Speeding tickets via picture messages?! The future is a scary place for my wallet ;P
Hey Wannab they already do that really. Not that I personally have gotten one, but I know they exist. You go check your mail and there is a envelope from a local government. When you open it there is a picture of your license plate on your car with a time and date as well as speed recorded, and of course an official copy of your ticket. Wait until Google gets active cell phone tracking and starts sending you adds for a place your gonna pass in 3 minutes on your right or left, with a coupon on it..
So you have the entertainment, now wheres the restroom?
So basically it makes it so you can driver your electric car to charge it up and know what its doing 24/7.... I guess I can just find any gas station on the corner with my petrol car....lol

I see the electric car as a method of reducing pollution. In a way it is an interim solution until we come up with alternatives that are better for cheap parts for cars. The electric car will not, and cannot prevent pollution, it merely tries to remove one form of pollution output.
