Delta plans to have WiFi on all its flights!
$10 for less than three hours, $12 for longer flights.
That is really pretty great, from my perspective. But how will they handle:
1. Access to power? Or will everybody have to bring extra batteries? That's
a lot of extra weight, and some fire risk.
2. Censoring content? Apparently, they are going to censor dirty stuff, stuff they think is dirty (I hope they cut out Keith Olbermann), and any kind of VOIP. There may be an arms race between cat and mouse. I guess this means Delta will be taking lessons from China on how to restrict internet sites. Ick.
3. Security? Sitting right there, so close, for hours. An enterprising scammer can buy tickets just for the purpose of stealing stuff, if it is all wireless.
Still, this would be very, very good.
