WiFi at Minute Maid
WiFi comes to Minute Maid Park. Of course this means realtime baseball blogging is hot on its heels. What a great country we live in.

$3.95 might not sound like a lot of money, but its pretty steep for what they are offering and the actual cost. No one (well not many people) are going to do much web browsing or bandwidth intencive work. People will most likely just want to check their email or send off a short email to convince others they are still at work. I would imagine that most of the connections would be made via PDAs rather than a laptop. Austin, Galveston and The State of Texas see the value in free Internet. To bad the money grubbers of Time Warner and the Astros can't see the benefits.
Can you imagine somebody blogging those days in Philadelphia a couple of hundred years ago?
