I want my boarding card…and the clicks for free

I was sitting in SFO yesterday waiting for a flight to Chicago, enjoying the TMobile Hotspot (you know, as a serious aside, I have been a customer for over 5 years. There should be a frequent downloader program or something for WISPs). It would have been great if I could have downloaded a boarding pass and either had a way to print it or store it to my PDA. Although bar-codes do not come off well today on LCDs, someone is going to fix this problem.Robert Frost once said: “If society fits you comfortably enough, you call it freedom.”As more of us develop mobile lifestyles, we are going to push business and government to morph around the changing work/play scenarios enabled by wireless networking. Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits please don’t be mad:”I want my boarding card.Public W-iFi for nothing, And the clicks for free.”Alan
