WiFi's and Laptops
WiFi's underwhelm me, since I can put together a router so easily. With a dinosaur of a Compac Presario 1610 (1998(, the hundred dollar laptop is much more interesting. Yahoo on an inex6 frame and ispq would be enough for me at the beach.

Some variant of wi-fi from a cell tower would be much more interesting for me, with all the travelling between city and sea shore I have to do. Ten dollars a month for cell tower/wifi should be enough to get planning under way.
