I’m posting this from a flight from NY–>LA while testing out American Airlines’ gogo* in-flight wifi service, which I shall henceforth refer to as “WiFly,” mainly because I enjoy the literary device known as “portmanteau.” I blogged about this in an August-based article, Air Travelers! Masturbate to Internet Flash-Porn in the Privacy of Seat 8-F, and am pleased that I finally get to try it out. It’s pricey–$12.95, but I forgive it because it’s a nascent service. PLUS, I can now get distracted from writing by the Web in the air as well as the land!
So far, the connection has been flawless and I feel that sense of nerd empowerment that you feel when you get a new toy. I’m not gonna lie, it’s almost sexually satisfying when you can control your desktop over the Rockies. (I think that’s right–“sex” is that thing where you’re naked except for your socks and you apologize a lot, right?) The only down side (beside the cost) is that you can’t do VoIP but I don’t think that video chats are off limits. Welp, I gotta go now. They just started an episode of “Big Bang Theory” and I need to watch it so I can see how nerds act.
*The unrelated site gogo.com I found to be pure indecipherable Asiantainment
