Inflight email

2003-06-23 23:42:48.761486+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Noticed this on the flight back from Hong Kong: Cathay Pacific offers in-flight email. USB[Wiki] jack in First Class, Business, and the first few rows of economy. Special Windows[Wiki] client software that talks to your POP account. Up to 15 minute latency. That article says $9.95 per flight plus $0.60 per K of body text, it was still in free trials on my flight although I had enough to do that I didn't want to reboot into Windows and install some funky drivers to try it out; you read the headers and download only the ones you care about. Seems like an expensive toy, but cool from a tech standpoint.
